Peter Bendix has his explanation for the controversial recent trade and now the proverbial floodgates have opened, as other trades are being suggested seemingly left and right. Lost in all of this, are the constant pitching injuries that the Miami Marlins have to deal with. There's also some news on a few ones potentially ending.

Miami Marlins injury news are both concerning and promising.

Edward Cabrera is already injured. After throwing 58 pitches against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night, he felt some tightness in his right bicep. This isn't even the first time that he had this issue. He's been having issues with his bicep since 2021. This is pretty alarming to say the least. Cabrera may in fact be pitching his way to becoming a reliever going forward if this continues.

Cabrera currently has a -0.4 WAR, to go along with an awful 7.17 ERA/4.18 FIP, with 13.1 K/9 and 5.1 BB/9. The strikeout rate remains elite, but the walks just keep being unbearable. It may certainly be time to consider if the experiment of him in the rotation has failed. He's been placed on the 15-day IL.

In better news, Braxton Garrett is finally coming back to the Miami Marlins. The starting pitcher has been injured all season with a left shoulder impingement, but should be back on the mound this weekend, The same news applies to fellow starting pitcher Jesus Luzardo. Luzardo is coming back from left elbow tightness. These are welcome news in what has been a down year for The Fish.

It's sadly doubtful that either Luzardo or Garrett will make much of a difference at this point. That said, seeing them healthy and productive in advance of next season will be a positive for The Fish. In other news, Roddery Munoz has been demoted back down to the Minors. Reliever George Soriano will be taking his place. Soriano has a 10.80 ERA/7.54 FIP, with 9.9 K/9 and 6.3 BB/9, in 9 games and 10.0 innings pitched. Munoz has a 5.17 ERA/7.04 FIP, with 10.9 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9, in 3 games and 15.2 innings pitched.
