Miami Marlins RHP Carter Capps to visit Dr. Andrews

The Sports Xchange

Miami Marlins right-hander Carter Capps will visit Dr. James Andrews to investigate the cause of ongoing issues with the elbow in his throwing arm.

Capps missed two months last season and significant time in 2014 with elbow soreness. The Marlins shut him down Thursday and could consider the 60-day disabled list depending on his exam with Andrews.


Capps felt a bite in his right elbow during batting practice Sunday. He told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel an MRI was "inconclusive. You know it's there, but you don't know if it's old, you don't know if it's new."

"Obviously, I'm concerned. I'd like to be out there pain free and competing," Capps said. "But at the same time it would be nice to have some peace of mind that comes with knowing that a guy that's looked at a lot of elbows, whatever he has to say, that will be more relaxing than just the wait-and-see wonder game, which is where I'm at right now."
