Marlins Pitching Injury Bug Continues, Southpaw Headed to IL

MIAMI, FL: Ryan Weathers has a strain in his left index finger, so the Marlins have placed him on the 15-day injured list.  Since being called up from Triple-A, right-hander Roddery Munoz started last night's game against the Guardians.

After throwing just 40 pitches into the third inning of his start in Tuesday night's game, Weather appeared headed for a trip to the IL.  


Weathers stated..

"just said he couldn't feel the ball anymore with his left index finger, so once I heard that, that was enough,"

Manager Skip Schumaker told and other media.


When Schumaker speaks with media earlier today, further information about Weathers' condition and a potential recovery schedule may be provided; nonetheless, a loss of feeling in the finger may indicate a nerve problem.

Weathers has been a major key of the Marlins young pitching staff. The 24-year old southpaw is pitching to a 3.55 ERA across 71.0 innings pitched this season. The lefty has compiled almost as many strikeouts as innings with 67.

The Marlins have had Weathers in their rotation since acquiring him from the Padres in exchange for Garrett Cooper in 2023.

Weathers' most valuable quality—aside from his consistent performance—has arguably been his availability, but the Marlins' rotation has been decimated by injuries, and he has suddenly become the next.

Now that Weathers has joined Edward Cabrera (10-day IL due to shoulder impingement), Sandy Alcantara (gone for the season due to Tommy John surgeries), Eury Perez (on the 10-day IL due to shoulder inflammation), and Sixto Sanchez (on the 10-day IL), every member of Miami's starting five has either been on the IL or is currently on the IL.
