Jose Garcia - Elbow Inflammation


Recommended Posts

Right-hander Jose Garcia suffered a setback in his bid to make the Marlins' rotation. After throwing two shutout innings against the Orioles in Fort Lauderdale on March 2, Garcia developed some elbow inflammation.


The Marlins don't think the problem is serious, but it's kept Garcia off the mound since then. Garcia's elbow remains tender, but he'll likely attempt to throw again in the coming days.


Unless Garcia makes a quick recovery this probably eliminates him from filling the injured Josh Johnson's rotation spot next month. Manager Fredi Gonzalez has said Garcia is a candidate along with Sergio Mitre, Yusmeiro Petit, Wes Obermueller and Chris George.
