DENVER -- The injuries continue mounting for the decimated Marlins. Long reliever Brian Sanches has been placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactie to Aug. 10 with a right elbow strain. Reliever Ryan Webb is being reinstated from the DL to take his spot.
Sanches (4-1, 3.38 in 58 2/3 IP) has not pitched since Aug. 9.
The Marlins bullpen remains shorthanded, as Edward Mujica is presently unavailable due to an injury to his right lat muscle that caused him to leave Monday's game here. Mujica doesn't think his injury is serious and expects to be available in a day or two. But how many times have we hard that this season?
Webb has been out for nearly two months with right shoulder inflammation. He last pitched on June 26.
To update, here's how the Marlins' DL list now stands:
C John Baker -- Rehab from Tommy John surgery, 60-day DL
INF Donnie Murphy -- Right wrist, 60-day DL
SP Josh Johnson -- Right shoulder inflammation, 60-day DL
OF Scott Cousins -- Lower back strain, 60-day DL
2B Omar Infante -- Broken finger, 15-day DL, expected back on Saturday
SS Hanley Ramirez -- Left shoulder sprain, 15-day DL
RP Brian Sanches -- Right elbow strain, 15-day DL
-- Also, down on the farm, Triple A New Orleans has placed LHP Sean West on the DL with elbow inflammation, pretty much eliminating any chance he ever had of receiving a September call-up.
