Marlins placed RHP Kendry Flores on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain.

He exited Saturday's start against the Nationals after only three innings. It was his first major league appearance of 2016. The Marlins haven't announced the corresponding roster move. Flores was 1-1 with a 2.59 ERA in six starts for Triple-A New Orleans before his promotion on Saturday.

Kendry Flores left Saturday's game against the Nationals with a right shoulder strain.

He made it through three scoreless innings before being lifted. Flores was called up to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader. This probably wasn't what he had in mind for his Marlins debut in 2016. Jose Urena replaced Flores at the start of the fourth inning. The Marlins are calling Flores day-to-day.
May 14 - 9:26 PM

Kendry Flores is expected to be recalled to start during Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

Justin Nicolino will start the other game. Flores has put up a 2.59 ERA and 24/12 K/BB ratio over 31 1/3 innings at Triple-A New Orleans this season.

Marlins optioned RHP Kendry Flores to Triple-A New Orleans.

Flores is one of the Marlins' top pitching prospects, though he mostly pitched out of the bullpen as a rookie last year before being shut down with shoulder tendinitis. The 24-year-old could see time in the major league rotation in 2016 if there's an injury.
Mar 16 - 9:09 AM

Marlins placed RHP Kendry Flores on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 22, with right shoulder tendinitis.

Flores was already scratched from Wednesday's scheduled start against the Pirates, but now he'll get an extended break. No word yet on who will replace him in the rotation.

Kendry Flores is not expected to make his scheduled start Wednesday due to discomfort in his right arm.

It's unclear at this point whether Flores might need a stint on the disabled list, but it doesn't look to be a serious issue at the moment. The Marlins haven't revealed who will take the ball versus the Pirates on Wednesday in Flores' place.

Kendry Flores was knocked around in a losing effort against the Phillies on Friday, surrendering five runs on seven hits over his five frames.

Flores punched out five and walked two on the evening. It was the first major league start for the 23-year-old right-hander, and just his seventh appearance overall. He started the night off with three scoreless innings before the Phillies broke through for four runs in the fourth. He'll look for better results on Wednesday against the Pirates.

Marlins optioned RHP Kendry Flores to Triple-A New Orleans.

Flores appeared in just two games in his time with the Marlins, hurling 3 2/3 scoreless innings. He should get another opportunity with the big league club before long the next time they need a fresh arm.

Marlins recalled RHP Kendry Flores from Double-A Jacksonville.

He'll join Miami's bullpen following Steve Cishek's demotion. Acquired from the Giants in the Casey McGehee deal over the winter, Flores posted a 2.06 ERA over nine starts in Double-A this season.

Joe Frisaro of MLB.com writes that prospect right-hander Kendry Flores is close to being called up from Double-A Jacksonville.

Acquired from the Giants in the Casey McGehee deal over the winter, Flores owns a 2.06 ERA with a 37/11 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings over seven starts in Double-A this year. Frisaro writes that the 23-year-old would function as rotation depth.

Marlins optioned RHP Kendry Flores to Double-A Jacksonville; re-assigned RHPs Nick Wittgren and Trevor Williams, INF Avery Romero and OF Austin Wates and Kenny Wilson to minor league camp.

No surprise cuts among this bunch. Acquired over the offseason from the Giants in the Casey McGehee deal, Flores will be tested out at Double-A for the first time in 2015.

Marlins acquired RHP Kendry Flores and RHP Luis Castillo from the Giants for INF Casey McGehee.

The 23-year-old hurler has a good feel for pitching and pinpoint command and is coming off a 2014 campaign where he registered a 4.09 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 112/32 K/BB ratio in 105 2/3 frames at High-A San Jose. He should begin the 2014 season at Double-A.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 10:14:00 AM

Juan C. Rodriguez of the Miami Sun Sentinel reports that the Marlins will receive minor league right-handers Kendry Flores and Luis Castillo from the Marlins in exchange for Casey McGehee.

The 23-year-old Flores spent the 2014 season as a starter at High-A San Jose where he posted a 4.09 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 112/32 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings. He has plenty of talent, though is still a long way away from being an option at the major league level.
