Scott Proctor shutdown again

Scott Proctor had a setback and the Marlins have shut him down, again.

Reliever Scott Proctor, who had a setback early this month when scar tissue in his surgically repaired right elbow broke up, will not throw for at least a couple days and that means he will likely not be ready for the start of the season.

I didn't know what to expect from Procter when he was signed.  If he was healthy, there was the possibility he could be an asset in the bullpen.  But considering his recent injury troubles, and given the fact his arm was abused in the past, I really don't what to expect for the future.

If I had to guess, he won't make through the entire season.  And eventually one of the young guys will take his place and Nunez will be the main setup man.  Who will take his place, if that happens, I don't know, but off the top of my head it would probably be Tucker or Badenhop.
