Kensing may be placed on the DL

New, 2 comments

The Fish could be without the services of Kensing for some time.

Right-hander Logan Kensing could be placed on the disabled list as early as today after an MRI performed Monday found he had a right wrist-flexor strain.

Kensing left Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers with what originally was reported as a sore elbow after throwing just five pitches.

If the Marlins put Kensing, 24, on the disabled list, they could fill his roster spot with a minor-leaguer such as right-hander Chris Resop, who has had three stints with the club already this season. Or they could wait and activate right-hander Sergio Mitre from the DL.

Given that Logan's second pitch is a slider, going on the DL would come as no surprise.

If Kensing joins the others on the list, I would guess a reliever would be brought up from the Isotopes.  Mitre hasn't made his rehab starts yet and he still needs to evaluated after he does.  The other aspect is Mitre, historically, hasn't been that good out of the pen.

Naturally the team could bump one of the others starters down to the pen to make room for him - but I don't believe they want to do that at this point in the season.

Mitre will probably rejoin the team, assuming everything goes well in his starts in the minors, when the team starts their twenty games in twenty days stretch in late August.
