Marlins third-base coach Jody Reed breaks leg when hit with line drive

Jul 20, 2023

The Miami Marlins will be without third-base coach Jody Reed for the foreseeable future.

Reed went down with a broken leg when he was hit by a foul ball in Wednesday’s 6-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. Reed was standing just off the third-base line in the third inning of the game when Marlins outfielder Jesús Sánchez hit a foul ball that drilled Reed directly in his lower right leg.

Although Reed didn’t fall to the ground, he started hopping around in pain.

He was replaced by quality control coach Griffin Benedict. It's unclear how long Reed will be sidelined.
