Jose Ceda Shutdown

Jose Ceda has been shutdown for the time being.

Playing it safe, the Marlins are shutting down right-hander Jose Ceda for a few days.

The 22-year-old reliever threw a bullpen session on Saturday, but he was held back from throwing on Sunday and Monday.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said after workouts on Tuesday that the team isn't taking any chances.

"We're going to slow him down and give him three or four days off," Gonzalez said.

Ceda's right shoulder felt some aggravation. One of the biggest players in camp, the 6-foot-4, 275-pounder has struggled in conditioning drills such as running.

 

Early shutdowns invariably mean that, at best, Ceda will open the season in the minors.  At worst, they mean he will get to see Birmingham, Alabama sometime in the not too distance future.

But whatever the case, don't draft Ceda on your fantasy team since he won't be among the opening day 25.
