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

Capps had a shot at the bullpen for Opening Day, but he struggled in spring training, allowing five runs in 4 2/3 innings. With the call-up, he'll get another chance to impress the organization. Last season, he held a 3.98 and struck out 25 in 20 1/3 innings.
Apr 13 - 2:55 PM

Marlins optioned RHP Carter Capps to Triple-A New Orleans; reassigned C Vinny Rottino, INF Austin Nola, LHPs Pat Misch and Pat Urckfitz, and RHP Vin Mazzaro and Ryan Chaffee to minor league camp.

Capps went into spring training with a chance to win a bullpen job, but he allowed five runs on five hits and four walks over 4 2/3 innings. The 24-year-old should get a chance with the big club at some point this year if he can remain healthy.
Mar 24 - 9:30 AM

Carter Capps walked four while getting two outs before exiting his outing Wednesday versus the Mets.

Capps also struggled in his first time out, though it wasn't the walks then (he gave up a three-run homer to the Mets' Brandon Allen in that one). He entered camp with a good chance of winning a spot in the Marlins pen, but he wasn't any sort of lock and he can't afford many more performances like this.
Mar 11 - 4:56 PM

Marlins activated RHP Carter Capps from the 60-day disabled list.

Capps has been out since late May because of a right elbow sprain. The 24-year-old right-hander will probably be used lightly down the stretch by the Marlins.

Carter Capps (elbow) will throw live batting practice next week.

Capps has been shut down since late May with a right elbow sprain. He's hoping to rejoin the Marlins' bullpen sometime next month.

Carter Capps (elbow) is expected to resume a throwing program in the next few days.

Capps has been shut down since late May with a right elbow sprain. He obviously has a long ways to go but could rejoin the Marlins' bullpen next month sometime if he's able to progress without setbacks.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Tue, May 27, 2014 04:38:00 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.
Tue, May 27, 2014 02:38:00 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.

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.
Tue, Mar 25, 2014 09:17:00 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.
