The injury bug has bitten the Marlins once again, as reliever Kyle Barraclough was placed on the 10-day DL with a right shoulder impingement.

The Marlins recalled Drew Steckenrider from Triple-A New Orleans to replace Barraclough on the roster.

Barraclough is the seventh(!) Marlin to be placed on the DL, as he joins Justin Bour, JT Riddle, and Martin Prado as recent additions. Wei-Yin Chen, Edinson Volquez, and Brad Ziegler are also on the DL.

The right-hander will have an MRI on Thursday in Miami.

Barraclough's injury creates a large void in the Marlins bullpen, especially since reliever David Phelps was traded to Seattle.

Junichi Tazawa will continue to serve in a setup role, according to Don Mattingly. Along with Tazawa, the Marlins will look to other pitchers, such as Jarlin Garcia, to fill the hole left by Barraclough.

This year, Barraclough is 4-1 with a 3.30 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP in 46.1 innings pitched. He last pitched on Monday, when he allowed zero runs in the eighth inning.

This will be the fourth time this season that Steckenrider has been called up to the major leagues. In nine appearances with the Marlins, Steckenrider is 1-1 with a 3.52 ERA and a 1.96 WHIP.

In 26 appearances for Triple-A New Orleans, the righty has a 1.62 ERA and 0.78 WHIP.

According to Mattingly, reliever Brad Ziegler will make a rehab appearance on Thursday.
