Feb. 24: SS signs; RHP transferred to 60-day injured list
In order to make room for Anderson on the 40-man roster, the Marlins placed Alcantara, who is rehabbing from October 2023 Tommy John surgery, on the 60-day IL.

INJURY UPDATES

RHP (neck spasms)
Expected return: In a few days
Chargois was scheduled to throw a live batting practice on Feb. 23, but he didn't do so after experiencing neck spasms during his bullpen session before facing hitters.

"Everything came out fine today, and so hopefully [the] next couple of days when it calms down [he'll throw]," manager Skip Schumaker said. "But yeah, just a neck spasm, so there was no reason to push it." (Last updated: Feb. 24)

LHP (left shoulder soreness)
Expected return: Progressing quickly
Garrett threw his first bullpen session of the spring on Feb. 23 after general soreness set his timeline back. He had been throwing on flat ground under the supervision of the training staff.

"He looked good," manager Skip Schumaker said. "Felt good afterwards. Feels good today. You're always wondering what it feels like the next day in the recovery process, but he feels really good, and it was one of the better bullpens he's thrown. So that's encouraging, obviously, to see him off the mound, and even better news at this point." (Last updated: Feb. 24)

RHP (Tommy John surgery)
Expected return: 2025
Alcantara, who announced on Oct. 6 that he had undergone Tommy John surgery and would miss the 2024 season, was transferred to the 60-day injured list on Feb. 24 to make room on the 40-man roster for Tim Anderson.

Alcantara initially felt the discomfort on the 94th and final pitch of his Sept. 3 start against the Nationals and was diagnosed with a right forearm flexor strain. An MRI later revealed a right UCL sprain. He began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Jacksonville on Sept. 21 but shut himself down after experiencing forearm tightness. (Last updated: Feb. 24)
