Marlins Way: Carter Capps to DL with Elbow Strain

At this time, elbow injuries are the last thing Miami Marlins fans want to hear about.

They have already claimed the season and more for their ace, Jose Fernandez. On Tuesday, the elbow injury struck again, as the Marlins placed right handed reliever Carter Capps on the 15-day disabled list with an elbow strain.

The good news?

The Marlins don’t suspect that Capps will need to have elbow surgery:

“He’ll be down for an extended period of time and start building back up, and see where we’re at,” said Redmond, who didn’t know if the MRI showed any evidence of a tear to the ulnar collateral ligament.

The Marlins acquired Capps in an off-season deal with the Seattle Mariners. The trade sent Logan Morrison up north. Morrison is currently on the DL with a hamstring injury.

Marlins @ Nationals Series Preview: When Will Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman Return?Ehsan Kassim 

As the Miami Marlins get ready to play on another rough road trip starting this afternoon, we reached out to the editor of District on Deck, Pablo Roa, to get some insight on a team surprisingly trailing the Marlins in the NL East, the Washington Nationals. DoD is one of the great Fansided sites, and they specialize in covering the Nationals. Pablo was kind enough to answer some questions that we had about the Nationals. Here was our conversation:

Garrett Jones is Hot Right Now but He Still Struggles Against LeftiesDaniel Zylberkan 

It might seem counterintuitive to say that Garrett Jones is getting victimized and Mike Redmond should take him out of his misery, he does currently have a .281/.351/.509 triple slash line with 8 HR and .369 wOBA. He has been key to powering the Marlins unlikely power surge in 2014.
