The Miami Marlins placed starting pitcher Jose Fernandez on the 15-day disabled list on May 12.

The Miami Marlins placed starting pitcher Jose Fernandez on the 15-day disabled list on May 12. 

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro notes Fernandez has a right elbow strain, with the Marlins hoping it's nothing more than inflammation or tendinitis: 

"Marlins ace Jose Fernandez, one of the rising young stars in the game, was placed on the disabled list with a right elbow strain Monday. The club was awaiting results of an MRI on the 21-year-old right-hander's throwing arm. 

"Miami manager Mike Redmond discussed the injury and the corresponding roster move -- left-hander Dan Jennings was called up from Triple-A -- before the Marlins opened their road series against the Dodgers. 

"Losing Fernandez is a blow to an upstart Miami team that is built around its rotation. 

"'You see how much he means, so much to our team and our rotation are really all of baseball,' Redmond said. 'He's been a dynamic player. He's been a huge lift and a huge spark for our team. We just hope everything goes well and he just has to take a little bit of a break.'

"The team is hoping it is just a bit of an inflammation, or tendinitis, but more will be known after he is fully examined. 

"On Monday, the right-hander had an MRI taken by Dodgers lead team physician by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles. 

"The results are expected back in a couple of days. After his MRI on Monday, Fernandez headed back to Miami, where he will be evaluated by Marlins physican Dr. Lee Kaplan." 

Clark Spencer and Manny Navarro of The Miami Herald reported on May 12 Fernandez already felt a little queasy three days earlier prior to the game against the San Diego Padres, who rocked him for two home runs -- the first time he's ever given up that many in his young career

"Fernandez, who was scheduled to make his next start on Wednesday against the Dodgers, was rocked on Friday in San Diego, giving up two home runs (including a grand slam) for the first time in his career. 

"His fastball velocity game dipped into the low 90s toward the end of the five-plus inning outing and Fernandez all but abandoned the pitch the final two innings. 

"Fernandez told reporters Saturday morning that he threw up before the game because of something he ate. When asked specifically if his arm was okay, Fernandez said everything was fine. 

"'Your arm's fine?' Fernandez was asked.

"'So far, yeah,' he replied. 

"Apparently, everything is not fine." 

This seems to be the case, as Fernandez may eventually miss the rest of the 2014 MLB season, per The South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Juan C. Rodriguez: 

"The player the Miami Marlins could least afford to lose will likely miss the rest of the 2014 season. 

"The initial diagnosis on ace Jose Fernandez is a right elbow sprain, but the Marlins anticipate Fernandez will require season-ending surgery, a source in contact with a team executive said. Before Monday's game at Dodger Stadium, manager Mike Redmond said the team was awating MRI results to determine the full extent of the injury. 

"Since Fernandez made his major league debut last season, he leads the National League in strikeouts (70), swings and misses (121) and swing-and-miss percentage (31.3 percent), and is fifth in batting average against (.188) and 11th in ERA (2.44)."

Rodriguez interviewed Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who said,"I don't know how long he'll be out. It's one of those things that's out of our control. He'll have to rehab and get it better, however long it's going to take. We'll have to do without him."

Miami catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia added,"It's a big hit, obviously. Good teams find a way to make it work and win."
