Marlins' Exciting Young Starter Heading to Injured List

The Marlins placed starting pitcher Edward Cabrera on the 15-day DL with right-elbow tendinitis. 

This past Sunday, in a game against the Houston Astros, the young starter allowed 7 hits and 5 runs in just 3.2 innings of work before being pulled. In hindsight, the rough start may have been due to the injury. 

Though predicting recovery time for elbow tendinitis is always difficult, Cabrera is expected to return after a minimum of two weeks. However, an extension to the righty's absence would come as no surprise.

Though Cabrera had just two starts prior to the game against Houston, he performed phenomenally in both. The starter recorded a win in each appearance and, over twelve innings, allowed just one run while throwing thirteen strikeouts.  

Cabrera is twenty-four years old and made his MLB debut with the Marlins last season. After his two impressive starts this year, Cabrera is likely to see much more time on the mound once he completes his recovery.
