Venezuelan Miami Marlins first baseman Jesús Aguilar was not returning to the team in the 2021 season due to his knee injury, reported Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
Aguilar was placed on the 10-day disabled list last week and now everything indicates that he will not have the time to recover. The Marlins are already out of the fight to make the postseason, so there is no point in rushing it.
