Carter Capps, who racked up 15 strikeouts in 10 innings for the Marlins since they called him up from Triple-A last month, is now headed to the disabled list with a sprained right elbow.

Capps was acquired from the Mariners for Logan Morrison this offseason and the 23-year-old right-hander has excellent raw stuff, recording 109 strikeouts in 96 career innings as a big leaguer. However, he’s also struggled to throw strikes with 3.5 walks per nine innings and has served up 13 homers.

Capps has the potential to be an impact late-inning reliever at some point and averaged 97.8 miles per hour with his fastball this year before being shut down.

    Another fireballer with a low inning/pitch count injuried? Has anyone noticed the trend?
