Tucker goes on Minor League DL
More injury woes for the Marlins Minor Leaguers.
Hard-throwing right-hander Ryan Tucker was placed on the seven-day disabled list on Wednesday, after he gave up seven earned runs in 1 2/3 innings on Tuesday night for Triple-A New Orleans. Tucker is dealing with a problem with his knee, which isn’t considered serious.
Tucker, a first-round pick in 2005, made his big league debut last year. The organization envisions him as a starter, but he also could be a relief candidate.
Tucker’s injury follows news that Taylor Tankersley, also in New Orleans, has a stress fracture in his left elbow. He will have surgery on Friday.
