Palm Beach PostRookie second baseman Dan Uggla remains hopeful that he'll return this week, but there's a chance he might not play until after the All-Star break.
Uggla, who leads the Marlins with 13 home runs, hasn't been able to run without pain since he left Tuesday's game with a strained right hamstring.
The Marlins, knowing hamstring injuries can take a while to fully heal, are considering a conservative approach with Uggla.
They might keep him benched for the next two weeks, hoping to have him return July 13, the first game after the break.
Never wish injury on anyone, especailly a guy like Uggla, but this could help out BP.
