He last pitched for Miami on June 12 against the Astros, going a season-low 3 2/3 innings in his third start of 2022. Cabrera also dealt with right biceps fatigue in early April.

"We've been trying to nurse it and battle through it and we kind of saw last night that we needed to take care of this thing," manager Don Mattingly said June 23. "It's been on the front side -- it's not the throwing shoulder, it's more of the arm that he gets up to hold himself. We've seen it last night, the wildness, the slider hasn't been the same. We were trying to get through it, and it was almost like we're at that point where we're not going to get through this." -- Christina De Nicola (Last updated: June 27)
