Marlins Way: Adeiny Hechavarria Likely Headed to DL


It looks more and more like Miami Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria is headed for a stint on the 15-day disabled list. He has not been in the Marlins lineup since Saturday.

Hech has suffered from a sore elbow and with the injury not feeling better as of yesterday, he flew back to Miami to have an MRI on his elbow.

The results of the MRI were better than what the team got when Jose Fernandez and Carter Capps underwent similar MRI’s earlier in the season. Hech was diagnosed with a right triceps strain.

The Marlins have not yet decided whether they are going to put Hechavarria on the DL as of yet. But if the team does, Donovan Solano, who is already on the 40-man roster, is a likely candidate to take Hech’s spot. Unless the Marlins look outside the organization for a solution (probably would be my preference).

Shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria’s return the lineup is delayed by another day if not longer. Hechavarria returned to Miami to have an MRI on his right elbow. The test revealed a right triceps strain. Monday, both Hechavarria and manager Mike Redmond were confident he would return Tuesday.
