Marlins is booking AJ Puk on the 15-day injured list, as the left-hander is dealing with some nerve irritation in his left elbow. A corresponding move has yet to be announced and it may not take place until Tuesday, as Miami has a day off on Monday. Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald (Twitter link) guess that JT Charois could replace Puk, as Charois was completing rehabilitation duties after being missing for just over a month due to an oblique strain.
Puk last appeared on May 10th, and the manager Ignore Schumaker speak Andre Fernandez of the Herald and other reporters before today’s game that Puk had to deal with a “amputated arm”. The appointment of nerve stimulation sheds some light on new and disturbing issues, as although Puk may return to normal in 15 days, there is no real timeline for nerve-related injuries. terrible.
It was another worrying traumatic setback for Puk, as Tommy John surgery cost him his entire 2018 season as a prospect in the Athletics farm system and he didn’t come out. yard in 2020 due to shoulder problems that eventually required surgery. Puk carried a lot of promise as a starter during minor league promotion, but his health problems led Team A to only use him as a reliever. In his first full MLB season, Puk mostly excelled posting an ERA of 3.12 in 66 innings of 1/3 relief for Team A in 2022.
That good form continued into Puk’s first year in Miami, as the Marlins handled JJ Bleday (another former top prospect) went to Oakland to buy a Puk in February. Although the Marlins considered using Puk as a starter, they chose to use him as their primary confidant instead, with positive results. Puk had 3.07 ERA and loads of impressive side stats in 14 innings of 2/3 against the Marlins, including 29.2% attack rate and 4.6% walk rate, both much higher compared to the league average. Batters doesn’t have much exposure to Puk’s recommendations, as his 2.4% barrel rate is one of the best in the MLB.
dylan flor made a save in today’s 3-1 win over the Reds, and he could be the favorite in the ninth inning of Puk’s absence due to Floro’s end of the 2020 season as Miami gets closer. . Marlins can also take a situational approach to salvage the situation, with any Floro, Andrew Nardi, Huascar Brazoban, Tanner Scottor Matt Barnes well complete closer missions based on in-game situations.
It’s been a tough couple of days in terms of health for the Marlins, because while Garrett Cooper give back from IL 10 today, Miami has lost both Jesus Sánchez and now Puk is on the injured list. Jazz Chisholm Jr.His condition will also be determined, as Schumaker said the center operator will visit a specialist on the big toe case. Chisholm was injured in yesterday’s game after a collision with a wall outside the field while chasing a balloon.
