LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Miami Marlins have put ace right-hander Jose Fernandez on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained elbow.
The Marlins made the move Monday. Last season's NL Rookie of the Year was scheduled to start Wednesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The 21-year-old Fernandez is 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA in eight starts.
Fernandez made 28 starts last year, going 12-6 with a major league-best .182 opponents' batting average. His 2.19 ERA was second in the majors behind three-time defending ERA champ Clayton Kershaw. Fernandez struck out 187 in 172 2-3 innings.
The Marlins recalled left-hander Dan Jennings from Triple-A New Orleans. He made 79 relief appearances for the Marlins over the previous three seasons, going 3-5 with a 2.96 ERA.
