It's time to start preparing for the upcoming MLB draft. In the meantime, the Miami Marlins placed third baseman Jean Segura on the injured list earlier today. Unfortunately, he wan]sn't the only one. Starting pitcher Edward Cabrera is going on the injured list too. What's going on? What happened? How long will he be out for? Let's take a look at what's happening with all of these unfortunate injuries today.
Miami Marlins placed starting pitcher Edward Cabrera on the 15 day injured list.
So what's going on today? What's with all of the injuries? Edward Cabrera is on the injured list with a right shoulder impingement. Luckily, it doesn't sound as if it's a serious injury despite the ominous sounding name for it. Manager Skip Schumaker had this to say:
“We’re hoping it’s just only two starts [missed]. I don’t think he’s going to miss a bullpen. He might even throw through that,”
This is great to hear, considering shoulder injuries for starting pitchers can be very serious. It appears to be a precautionary move, and hopefully that's all it is. It isn't yet known if he will require further tests, or whether he will just need rest for the time being. I'm hoping that rest will be enough to get Cabrera back into top form.
Edward Cabrera broke out last season with a 3.01 ERA, 9.4 K/9 and 4.1 BB/9, in 14 games and 71.2 innings pitched. This season hasn't went as well for him. He currently has a 4.70 ERA in 14 games and 67.0 innings pitched. Control has been an issue for Cabrera since his debut in 2021. He has a career 5.5 BB/9.
The Miami Marlins called up right-handed relief pitcher Huascar Brazoban from the Minor Leagues to replace Cabrera. Brazoban was recently demoted to the Minors, but he's already back on the Major League team. Brazoban has a 4.01 ERA/4.02 FIP with 9.9 K/9 and 4.8 BB/9 in 28 games and 33.2 innings pitched. Hopefully, Brazoban pitches closer to the 3.09 ERA that he produced last season in 27 games and 32.0 innings pitched.
