Date:

Marlins manager Mike Redmond announced Wednesday that reliever Carter Capps will not require Tommy John reconstructive surgery on his right elbow.

Capps paid a visit to Dr. James Andrews, who prescribed a month of rest. The right-hander had a 3.00 ERA in nine games before being placed on the disabled list on May 26. He could return sometime in August.
Jun 4 - 5:34 PM

Marlins transferred RHP Carter Capps from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears room on the 40-man roster for the addition of Justin Bour. Capps will undergo a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews but is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery.
Jun 4 - 2:44 PM

Carter Capps (elbow) will get a second opinion and have his right elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews.

It's never a good thing when a pitcher has to see Dr. James Andrews. The Marlins recently shut down Capps for four weeks with a sprained right elbow. Tommy John surgery remains a possibility, and the Marlins will know for sure their course of action once the examination is complete. Capps posted a 3.00 with a 15/3 K/BB ratio in 12 relief innings.
May 31 - 2:06 PM

Carter Capps (elbow) has been shut down four weeks.

Capps was placed on the disabled list Tuesday with a right elbow sprain. The Marlins are hoping that a month of rest will heal the injury and that surgery won't be necessary. Capps, 23, was sporting a 3.00 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 12 innings this year for Miami.
May 27 - 4:38 PM

Marlins placed RHP Carter Capps on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 26, with a right elbow sprain.

The severity of the injury isn't yet known. Capps, 23, had a 3.00 ERA and 15 strikeouts over 12 innings since being recalled from the minors a month ago.
May 27 - 2:38 PM

Marlins recalled RHP Carter Capps from Triple-A New Orleans.

He'll assume the bullpen spot left vacated by Arquimedes Caminero. Acquired from the Mariners over the winter for Logan Morrison, Capps posted a 1.64 ERA with 17 strikeouts over 11 innings to earn the promotion.
Apr 23 - 9:06 AM

Marlins optioned RHP Carter Capps to Triple-A New Orleans.

Acquired from the Mariners over the winter for Logan Morrison, Capps posted a 3.60 ERA and 8/5 K/BB ratio across 10 innings this spring. While most assumed he would get a roster coming into spring training, he'll surely contribute out of the big league bullpen at some point this season.
Mar 25 - 9:17 AM

Carter Capps struck out four in two scoreless innings of relief Wednesday against the Braves.

The hard-throwing Capps was the Marlins' return in the Logan Morrison trade with the Mariners. Overall, he's allowed two runs and posted a 5/3 K/BB ratio in five innings this spring. A bullpen spot appears to be his to lose.
Mar 12 - 4:06 PM

Marlins acquired RHP Carter Capps from the Mariners for 1B Logan Morrison.

It's not a great return for LoMo, though the Marlins probably weren't expecting much after the way his career flat-lined in Miami. Capps posted an ugly 5.49 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 59 innings this past season with Seattle. He'll serve as a setup man for the Marlins.

Mariners recalled RHP Carter Capps from Triple-A Tacoma.

He'll replace Tom Wilhelmsen in the Mariners' bullpen. Capps has an ugly 6.37 ERA in 33 appearances this season, but owns a 42/12 K/BB ratio over 35 1/3 innings.
Tue, Aug 6, 2013 01:18:00 PM

Mariners optioned RHP Carter Capps to Triple-A Tacoma.

Capps possesses good raw stuff but has registered a disappointing 6.37 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in 35 1/3 innings this season despite a cool 42/12 K/BB ratio. The young right-hander will work on his craft at the Triple-A level.
Thu, Jul 11, 2013 01:01:00 PM

Carter Capps gave up a pair of homers Tuesday against the Pirates and has now allowed 10 runs in his last four appearances.

It's taken his ERA from 3.54 to 5.97, and he's now in serious danger of being sent down. Capps was supposed to emerge as the No. 2 man in Seattle's pen this year, and with 40 strikeouts in 31 2/3 innings, he's still showing that kind of potential. He's a mess right now, though.
Wed, Jun 26, 2013 01:54:00 AM

Mariners manager Eric Wedge said he'll likely use Carter Capps as the setup man to Tom Wilhelmsen while Stephen Pryor is on the disabled list.

Capps has been knocked around the last two times out and has a 7.71 ERA and 1.86 WHIP, but he's also struck out 10 over seven innings and possesses a great arm. Wilhelmsen is off to a great start and has plenty of job security, but Capps might be worth a stash in AL-only formats.
Wed, Apr 17, 2013 08:39:00 PM

Mariners purchased the contract of RHP Carter Capps from Triple-A Tacoma.

The move was made on July 31. Capps made his major league debut on Friday against the Yankees and was charged with two runs on one hit and a walk over one-third of an inning. The 21-year-old had a dominant 2.47 ERA and 96/22 K/BB ratio over 69 1/3 innings in the minors and has all the makings of a closer of the future.
