Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez (undisclosed) is expected to land on the disabled list with an unknown injury.
Fantasy Tip: The exact nature of the injury is a mystery right now. Fernandez is undergoing an MRI exam in L.A., and we should know more this evening or tomorrow morning. Of the options currently on the roster, Kevin Slowey or Brad Hand could enter the rotation to take Fernandez's spot. Down on the farm, prospect Andrew Heaney or Brian Flynn would cause the bigger stir in fantasy circles if they were to be brought up. Stay tuned.

Miami Marlins SP Jacob Turner (shoulder) will throw a bullpen Friday, April 18, and should be ready for a rehab assignment shortly after that. The team doesn't need a fifth starter after Sunday, April 20, until May 3 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, so SP Kevin Slowey might only receive one start.
Fantasy Tip: Slowey probably isn't worth adding, even in NL-only leagues, because his start Sunday is likely to be his last, at least for a while.

Miami Marlins SP Kevin Slowey will make the start against the Seattle Mariners Sunday, April 20, taking the spot of SP Brad Hand.
Fantasy Tip: Slowey hasn't pitched since last July due to a forearm injury. He gives up a ton of contact, so he's more of an NL-only commodity as an innings eater.

The Miami Marlins sent down Arquimedes Caminero despite having a good spring. The move was made because he has an option left, and it cleared the way for non-roster invitees RP Henry Rodriguez and P Kevin Slowey to make the club.

Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand, who is out of minor league options and is fighting for a roster spot as a starter or reliever, has a 0.75 ERA and has struck out 15 hitters in 12 innings this spring. Hand is firmly competing for a roster spot with SPs Tom Koehler and Kevin Slowey. "My changeup has been working really well this spring," Hand said. "That's been the biggest part of where I've struggled, getting behind hitters, walking guys. That's one of the big things I've been working on, getting ahead and staying ahead."

Miami Marlins SP Kevin Slowey tossed two scoreless innings in a spring start Saturday, March 1, against the New York Mets in his Grapefruit League season debut. He is hoping to duplicate last season's spring success, when he was a non-roster invitee, but ended up winning a rotation spot. He is once again a non-roster invitee this season.
