Marlins reliever Brian Ellington threw eight pitches -- all balls -- during his Grapefruit League debut on Sunday against the Braves and was promptly relieved. The right-hander experienced soreness in his throwing shoulder and was diagnosed on Monday with right biceps tendinitis. No MRI was done.
Spin: "He's a little sore. He was feeling something," manager Don Mattingly said before the diagnosis. "So we'll make sure he's good. Obviously, he had a little bout of wildness. So we'll see, make sure that's not something physical, and then go from there." Ellington, whose fastball velocity routinely reaches the upper 90s and even triple digits, was down a little bit. Mattingly said it was the first sign of possible physical problems. "I watched him throw on the back field a few days ago," Mattingly said. "I thought he threw the ball good. He's been doing extra work, looked good, was progressing. We thought he was starting to turn the corner." The 27-year-old, who is 7-4 with a 4.65 ERA, 98 strikeouts and 64 walks over 102 2/3 innings spanning parts of three big league seasons, is a flamethrowing option out of the bullpen.
