Marlins placed 1B Justin Bour on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 3, with a right ankle sprain.

The 28-year-old has produced an excellent .873 OPS with 15 home runs and 46 RBI in 213 at-bats this season for the Marlins. Chris Johnson has filled in at first base the last three games.

Justin Bour swatted a grand slam in the first inning but that was all the Marlins could muster in a loss to the Cubs on Friday.

Bour's slam tied the game at 4-4 in the first inning but only one more run was scored the rest of the game. The big fly was the 13th of the season for Bour, who sports a .268/.339/.515 line on the season. Those rate stats look good but he doesn't have the counting stats to match. His 26 runs and 40 RBI with no steals are not what his owners need from their first baseman.
