JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -Marlins left-hander Scott Olsen was scratched from Thursday's start against St. Louis because of left shoulder tendinitis.
Olsen started Florida's spring training opener. He's the leading candidate to start the season opener March 31 against the New York Mets.
Olsen, who went 10-15 last season with a 5.81 ERA, has allowed three hits in five scoreless innings this spring.
Aaron Thompson will start in Olsen's place against the Cardinals.
