PHILADELPHIA -- Marlins second baseman Rafael Furcal, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday, has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 left hamstring strain.

Furcal missed the first two months of the season with hamstring and groin injuries, and is expected to miss a "significant amount of time" as he recovers from this injury.

"I don't think we're prepared to say he's done for the year," Redmond said. "He's done for quite a bit of time. I'm not sure how long."
