Florida Marlins right-hander Anibal Sanchez was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday because of a sprained right shoulder.
The Marlins made the move before the start of a six-game trip in Colorado. The injury forced Sanchez from Thursday’s game against Atlanta in the fifth inning.
Sanchez had shoulder surgery in June 2007 and returned last July. As a rookie in 2006 he went 10-3 and threw a no-hitter against Arizona, but he’s 1-4 this season with an ERA of 5.79.
Marlins Manager Fredi Gonzalez said team officials initially feared one of four tacks used to stabilize Sanchez’s shoulder had come loose and were relieved when doctors determined the surgical repair remained intact. Still, Gonzalez said Sanchez likely will be sidelined until after the All-Star break.
A simple shoulder sprain shouldn’t bench a pitcher for two months. Unless Florida is being careful. The Marlins starting pitching has been woeful this year, none of them chalked up a win for 20 straight games before last night’s affair.
