Pena sprains ankle, will likely miss time
VIERA, Fla. -- Shortstop Ramiro Pena left Thursday's game against the Nationals with a sore right ankle suffered on a slide into second on a stolen-base attempt in the fourth inning.

Pena, who got his spike caught in the dirt, seemed to think the injury would only cost him two or three days of action, but manager Joe Girardi wasn't as sure.

"We'll see about that," Girardi said. "I imagine it's going to be pretty sore [Friday]."

Girardi said there were no tests planned for the injured ankle.

"We'll probably wait a couple days to see where he is," Girardi said, "and if there's a bigger concern, we'll have some tests."
