MLB: Marlins’ ace Jose Fernandez to DL with sprained right elbow

According to Jeff Passan on Twitter, Tommy John surgery is basically an inevitability for Fernandez.  Welp, here’s your bummer of the month:

LOS ANGELES—Marlins ace Jose Fernandez was placed on the disabled list with a right elbow sprain Monday. The club was awaiting results of an MRI on the 21-year-old right-hander’s throwing arm.

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 and really all of baseball,” Marlins manager Mike 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.”

Fernandez was initially scheduled to pitch in Wednesday’s series finale at the Dodgers. For now, the Marlins have yet to announce who will take his place.

Miami did recall lefty reliever Dan Jennings to fill Fernandez’s roster spot.

Fernandez expressed to the team that he felt some discomfort following his start on Friday.

Are fast-pitching softballers less susceptible to injury, since their motion is more "natural"?
