Alex Sanabia lost Steve Cishek’s sunglasses on the way to the ballpark Sunday. The day went downhill from there for both pitchers.

Sanabia surrendered four runs and sustained a groin injury that he said will likely force him to the disabled list, and Cishek gave up a run in the ninth as the Marlins lost their fifth in a row, a 5-3 defeat to the Chicago White Sox.

Along the way, two Marlins were thrown out at the plate.

“Right now, there’s no point in continuing to pitch, because it’ll only make it weaker,” Sanabia said of his injured groin. “I don’t want to make it worse and have it be something serious instead of something minor.”

Sanabia will join 11 other Marlins who are already on the disabled list. The Marlins are expected to call up left-handed reliever Dan Jennings from Triple A New Orleans, and could turn to either Wade LeBlanc or Duane Below to move into the rotation — at least for the time being.

It has been a long week for Sanabia. The right-hander made headlines when video captured him spitting on the baseball in his start against the Phillies earlier in the week.

On Sunday, he was knocked around early by the White Sox, giving up a pair of runs in each of the first two innings before exiting after the fourth.

Sanabia said he injured his groin in the first couple innings but stayed on the mound to preserve the bullpen as much as possible.

“It’s not anything serious,” he said. “But it’s not going to get better by going out there. So a few days to recover and pitch stronger.”
