Miami Marlins third baseman Hanley Ramirez cut his hand when he hit an electric fan after returning to the dugout following a sixth-inning groundout Sunday, reports HardballTalk's Matthew Pouliot.

Ramirez left the game and received stitches for the injury, Pouliot reports.

“Very stupid injury,” manager Ozzie Guillen told reporters. “Very immature. … You make an out, you hit something and you injure it, you don’t just hurt yourself, you hurt the ballclub."

Ramirez may not miss any games because of the upcoming All-Star break, Pouliot reports.

Ramirez, a former All-Star, has struggled this season. He is hitting .249 with 12 home runs. The Marlins have also struggled recently. The team spent freely in the offseason as it prepared to move into a new stadium, signing free agents Mark Buehrle and Jose Reyes. But Miami is in fourth place in the National League East heading into the All-Star break. Closer Heath Bell, another offseason acquisition, blew a late lead in a 5-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday.
