Proctor checks out OK

Some more good news for reliever Scott Proctor.

An X-ray taken on Monday came back negative, re-affirming there is no structural damage in the right-hander’s throwing elbow.

Proctor expects to pick up his throwing program on Thursday, and he is eager to get back to action.

The Marlins are counting on Proctor to be a key contributor in a late-inning setup role. He has appeared in one Grapefruit League game thus far, throwing a scoreless inning.

I am glad to hear Proctor is doing OK, the Fish need a veteran in the late innings. One name I saw pitching the other day, Carlos Martinez, I forgot about him. I think he had an ERA under 2.00 before he got hurt a few years ago, what are his chances to make the team?

Carlos Martinez is healthy, and that’s the main thing. I don’t expect him to be on the Opening Day roster, but over the long season, it’s always good to have options in the Minor Leagues. Martinez may be one of them.
