PEARL, Miss. (AP) - Rafael Furcal's second attempt at coming back from injuries didn't have a good start.

The Miami Marlins infielder re-aggravated a groin injury while playing second base for Double-A Jacksonville on Friday.

Jacksonville manager Andy Barkett said Furcal felt tightness in his groin while covering second base and left the game in the fourth inning. Barkett said Furcal is considered day-to-day.

The 36-year-old Furcal has been on the disabled list since the beginning of the season, initially because of a hamstring injury. His first attempt at a comeback ended on Sunday after nine games in the minors when he left a game with tightness in his groin.

Furcal signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Marlins after sitting out all of 2013 with an elbow injury.
