Miami Marlins starting pitcher Jose Fernandez was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a sprained right elbow. However, Marlins management fears the injury may be more severe and possibly may even end up being a torn ligament. If that is the case, Fernandez would most likely require season-ending surgery to repair the ligament.

When Miami manager Mike Redmond announced the injury he hinted that he would be surprised if Fernandez was indeed diagnosed with a torn ligament. He claimed that the team has kept Fernandez's workload consistent and has occasionally given him extra days to rest between starts.

If it is discovered that Fernandez does have a torn ligament he would join a long list of major league pitchers already missing time with the same injury including Rays starter Matt Moore and Mets closer Bobby Parnell. Fernandez is 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA in eight starts this season.

Miami recalled left-hander Dan Jennings from triple-A New Orleans to replace Fernandez on the active roster.
