Marlins Pitcher To Miss Time

The Miami Marlins will be without Cody Poteet for a bit, as the pitcher has been placed on the 15-day injured list.

Poteet has appeared in a career-high 11 games so far this season and has shown that he is capable of being an effective major league reliever. At this juncture, he sports a 0-1 record to go along with a solid 2.42 ERA. However, this solid start now has to be put on pause due to his current elbow injury.

Elbow injuries are always concerning for pitchers, so we will need to wait and see if Poteet will need more time on the IL after these 15 days pass. Here's to hoping he doesn't and can return to the mound immediately after.
