On Friday the Miami Marlins reached a deal with the San Diego Padres to acquire starting pitchers Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea. Today, the Marlins are reportedly using a cheat code to call a “redo” and undo part of that trade.

Luis Castillo is returning to the Marlins in the deal, according to Rosenthal.

Rea left his first start with the Marlins on Saturday after injuring his elbow. He was subsequently sent to the disabled list and was scheduled to have an MRI today. This news may indicate that the elbow injury is worse than originally feared, and possibly that there was some clause in the trade that allowed the Marlins to rework the deal if either player suffered an injury. Rea was pitching to a 4.82 ERA with a 4.61 FIP this season.
