David Phelps left his start on Sunday afternoon with an elbow injury and is headed to the disabled list. According to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins will make the corresponding roster move prior to Monday's contest against Milwaukee.

"We gave him the start off, and he battled through it," Jennings said. "He said he felt it. He felt a little burn there. Hopefully it's minor. But until we have Dr. Kaplan look at it, then we don't know."

Derek Dietrich's three run triple helped the Marlins top the Cardinals 6-4 on Sunday afternoon.

Jose Fernandez, Carter Capps, and Jarred Cosart are all getting closer to joining the Marlins.
