Marlins reliever Carter Capps landed on the disabled list earlier this week with a right elbow sprain and Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that he’ll see Dr. James Andrews next Wednesday.
Capps, who was acquired from the Mariners in the Logan Morrison deal, allowed three runs in 12 innings with a 15/3 K/BB ratio after being called up from Triple-A New Orleans last month. A “sprain” is a “tear” by definition, but the Marlins haven’t said whether he has any damage to his ulnar collateral ligament.
The hard-throwing Capps has been shut down for four weeks, but there should be more clarity on his status after he sees Dr. Andrews. Either way, a return to the Marlins’ bullpen doesn’t appear imminent.
