Aaron Crow was being considered for a bullpen job, however his season may be over. An MRI revealed a tear, and according to's Joe Frisaro, Crow is seeking a second opinion and will consider Tommy John surgery in the coming days.

"The last time I pitched was Saturday," Crow said. "I felt fine then. But I came in the next day [and] it was really sore and it was painful to throw. Everything before that was pretty much normal, like normal soreness. It got really bad on Sunday."

Crow, 28, posted a 4.12 ERA and 5.40 FIP in 59.0 innings pitched with the Royals last season. The Marlins acquired Crow from Kansas City in November. He posted a 2.25 ERA in eight innings this spring, walking four and striking out nine.

Crow will be eligible for free agency in 2017, and will likely remain with the Marlins through the rehab process. With Crow likely out for the season, Sam Dyson likely will earn a spot in Miami's bullpen.
