The Miami Marlins lost multiple key players to injuries. Leadoff hitter and CF Jazz Chisholm Jr.; starting pitcher Trevor Rogers; third baseman and bust Jean Segura; starting pitcher Max Meyer; RF Avisail Garcia and starting pitchers Edward Cabrera and Johnny Cueto. We finally have news on these players and their recovery timelines.
The Miami Marlins have quite a few injured players.
Let’s start with Jazz Chisholm Jr…. The potential face of the team, alternates between batting leadoff and third in the batting order while remaining a key bat. He’s already started playing rehab games, and is likely to be back as early as next week. This should be a major boost to the Miami Marlins lineup.
Trevor Rogers has been getting back to his 2021 Cy Young contending form. He’s been recovering from both a right lat strain and a left bicep strain. Sadly, there’s no timetable for his return at the moment.
RF Avisail Garcia hasn’t given Miami Marlins fans much to miss him for. The disappointing slugger is coming back from left back tightness, and has no timetable for his return due to suffering a setback.
Another hitter on this extended list, the aforementioned third baseman Jean Segura is coming back from a hamstring issue. He‘s expected to be back in early July, and there’s hope that he doesn’t experience any recurring hamstring issues. Let‘s hope that he’s also able to bounce back from a disappointing season.
Starting pitcher Edward Cabrera is recovering from a blister issue, and is expected to only miss two starts. Fellow rotation member Johnny Cueto may be on his way back. This may not be good news, as he gave up six runs in 4 2/3 innings, in his latest AAA Jacksonville rehab start. Can he bounce back at all? He has a 36.00 ERA in a lone inning this season.
Starting pitchers Max Meyer and Sixto Sanchez have worse timelines. Meyer isn’t expected back until next season, as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. Sixto had yet another setback in his comeback from right shoulder surgery. It’s unknown when he’ll finally be back on the Major League mound.
