The Marlins made a couple of roster moves today, according to their transactions tracker at MLB.com. Right-handed pitcher Paul Campbell was placed on the injured list, retroactive to April 18th, with a right elbow strain. Lefty Daniel Castano was recalled to take his place on the active roster.
Campbell was recalled from the minors a few days ago but didn’t get a chance to pitch in any big league games before this IL placement. While there was no timeline provided for the injury, an elbow issue is always somewhat concerning for a pitcher. He made his MLB debut last year, throwing 26 2/3 innings for the Marlins with a 6.41 ERA, 21% strikeout rate and 8.1% walk rate. In eight Triple-A innings this year, he has an elevated 11.25 ERA and 13.2% walk rate, though a strong 23.7% strikeout rate.
Castano already has two scoreless MLB innings under his belt this year. For his career, he’s thrown 52 innings for the Marlins since his 2020 debut, putting up an ERA of 3.63, 11.8% strikeout rate and 8.3% walk rate. He’ll join Richard Bleier, Tanner Scott and Steven Okert as left-handed options in Miami’s bullpen.
