Florida Marlin second baseman Luis Castillo appeared to lose a tooth after colliding with first baseman Jeff Conine while trying to catch J.T. Snow's pop fly in shallow right field in the seventh inning of Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Giants at San Francisco.

Castillo was replaced at second base by Kurt Abbott, and his condition was not immediately available after the game.
