As Maverick reported in yesterday's Open Thread and you may have noticed if watched the game, the Marlins have made some additions to the team.
However the early reports of Gaby Hernandez and Chris Volstad joining the team have changed.
Voldstad and Hernandez are among the young pitchers being shut down the rest of the way, said Jim Fleming, Marlins vice president of player development and scouting.
This is probably for the best since Volstad has already thrown 163.2 innings this season and with the injury nexus being around 170 innings there is no need to risk his arm.
Hernandez's workload has been a little lighter at 153.2 innings pitched. But considering he only threw 113.1 innings last season and clubs generally don't like to extend a pitcher more than 30 innings above the previous season's total, he's done.
On a purely selfish note: I would've like to see them pitch, but there is always next year.
In other news, four more players from the Minors are expected to join the club for tonight's game.
The way Hermida and Ross are hitting and if Willingham's back holds in there, it could be hard for the two outfielders to see a lot of action. But I do hope that Carroll will get some playing time. If for no other reason, it is fun to watch him throw.
If you unfamiliar with our four newest additions, head on over to Future Fish and Maverick will fill you in.
