Robert Andino to miss 3-4 weeks

Robert Andino to miss 3-4 weeks

Looks like Andino is headed to the DL with a left shoulder strain. Losing Andino hurts the team's depth but his -0.1 WAR through 79 games is hardly irreplaceable. If Tolleson/Flaherty's defense end up being about average then it shouldn't effect the team too much.

Not really a loss due to Andino as a player, but more so because there's no one to play 2B now.

You never want to see an injury but at least now we may see what Flaherty can do given some consistent playing time. I imagine he and Tolleson will platoon until Andino is back.

No great loss there. At least his replacement won't strike out so much. He is very disposable IMO.

Flaherty has looked awful at 2B tonight. Reynolds saved him with 4 very nice scoops.
