Scott Proctor shutdown

Scott Proctor has been shutdown at for a little while, at least.

Marlins reliever Scott Proctor is experiencing pain in his right elbow and won’t pitch in a Grapefruit League game at least until next week. The Marlins still think he’ll be ready when the season starts because they believe the discomfort is related to scar tissue breaking up in Proctor’s elbow.

Really don't know what to think of this.  Proctor has a history of elbow tendinitis and he had surgery on his shoulder in October.  However, the Marlins had to shutdown Nolasco during last year's spring training due to pain in the elbow but he did open the season in the bullpen.  Yeah, he was still rehabbing, if you will, and the Marlins needed the pitchers.  But given the length of spring training this season, assuming it is nothing serious, Proctor should be able to get into form before the start of the season.

We will keep an eye of this.
