Day to day

OF Corey Dickerson (foot soreness)
On June 13, Dickerson was replaced in the seventh inning by Magneuris Sierra for precautionary reasons. Manager Don Mattingly said he hit the base "a little funky" on his inning-ending groundout in the fifth.

"Corey just got in," Mattingly said. "His foot was sore from where he landed on the base, and that's one of the things we'll check out. It's an injury that he had had in the past from a couple years ago, so that's an area of concern of keeping an eye on him." (Last updated: June 14)

10-day IL

2B/SS José Devers (right shoulder impingement)
Expected return: When activated, would go to Triple-A Jacksonville
Devers exited as part of a double switch in the fourth inning on June 13. He hurt his shoulder swinging at a high fastball that he fouled back during his first at-bat, according to manager Don Mattingly. (Last updated: June 14)

SS (dislocated left index finger)
Expected return:
This week
Rojas was scheduled to begin a rehab assignment on June 13 with Triple-A Jacksonville, but the game was rained out. He dislocated the index finger on his left hand while sliding back to the first-base bag on a pickoff in the eighth inning on May 27. The Marlins placed him on the 10-day injured list on May 28. Rojas underwent X-rays, which revealed a small avulsion fracture.

"It's basically being able to do some things game-wise, make sure that his hand's going to hold up," manager Don Mattingly said. "He's been doing everything. He's been hitting off machines, been hitting BPs, been taking ground balls. He's doing all the things. You can't simulate a swing and miss, you can't simulate a check swing, [or] if he has to go slide. All those little things, just kind of crossing those boxes off." (Last updated: June 14)

RHP (right groin strain)
Expected return: Mid-June
Holloway made his second rehab start on June 11, throwing 56 pitches across 3 2/3 innings for Triple-A Jacksonville. He scattered three hits and allowed an unearned run with two strikeouts. Placed on the 10-day IL on May 22, he would be a candidate to rejoin the rotation when ready.

"Depending on where we're willing to go with that, or if they want him to make another start, that gets him into that 75 range and kind of where you're pretty comfortable," manager Don Mattingly said. "We're hoping the next one goes good. The last one was good. Try to get his pitches built up, but [it's] not always his pitches but his ups. Making sure he's getting hopefully this time in terms of the four ups, even if it's 3 1/3 innings or whatever it is, but get the ups going that helps that progression." (Last updated: June 11)

1B/OF (lumbar strain)
Expected return:
Cooper had not played in a game since June 7 in Boston, and the IL stint is retroactive to June 8. General manager Kim Ng said a timetable for his return is not yet known; the club will see how he responds over the next few days.

"He did it two or three days ago and it just hasn't really improved," Ng said. "I think at one point it got a little bit better, and then it's got worse, and now it's just stagnated where we just felt we had to do something." (Last updated: June 9)

RHP (right MCL sprain)
Expected return:
Mid-late June
Poteet resumed light tossing on June 7. He exited his start in the third inning on June 4 after feeling discomfort while throwing a warmup pitch. (Last updated: June 8)

RHP (right biceps inflammation)
Expected return: June
Neidert is scheduled to throw a bullpen session later this week. Neidert was placed on the 10-day IL on May 27. (Last updated: June 8)

60-day IL

3B (left shoulder subluxation)
Expected return:
Late July
Anderson is not ready to begin a hitting progression. During an appearance on Bally Sports Florida's broadcast on June 11, Anderson said he has been able to throw and use his glove hand to catch the ball. The hope is he can begin playing defense this week, then hit right after that. Anderson has been out of the lineup since Miami's loss to Philadelphia on May 25.

"It's all going well right now," Anderson said. "It's getting better each and every day. Trying to get some of the inflammation out of there, and the range of motion back." (Last updated: June 14)

RHP (right elbow inflammation)
Expected return: Second half
The Marlins' No. 29 prospect was scheduled to throw 45 pitches in an extended spring game on June 14. He was placed on the 60-day injured list on May 9. (Last updated: June 14)

RHP (right quad strain)
Expected return: At least 60 days
An MRI revealed that Hernandez's injury was severe, so the Marlins transferred him to the 60-day IL. He looked solid on the mound but got hurt while scoring a run in his return from right biceps inflammation on June 3.

"No real surprise I don't think for us with Elieser," manager Don Mattingly said. "We knew it was going to be pretty severe, just the way it happened and then the way he was feeling afterwards and the next day. It felt pretty simple that it was going to take him this long to get back, once he gets healthy enough to start throwing and then the build-up and all of that." (Last updated: June 5)

Minors (but injured)

RHP (inflamed nerve in right biceps)
Expected return
: Mid-late June at Triple-A
MLB Pipeline's No. 54 overall prospect threw 51 pitches in his second rehab start with Low-A Jupiter on June 12. He struck out eight batters over three scoreless innings. Cabrera began a rehab assignment on June 6, and he likely will join Triple-A Jacksonville's rotation when he is ready.

"We haven't necessarily decided how much he's going to go," general manager Kim Ng said on June 8. "I think we need to get to that point. After that, we can get him reinstated. Try and get him out there pitching in more games, we'll get him out there at a higher level." (Last updated: June 13)

RHP (right shoulder inflammation)
Expected return
: Second half
Sánchez is throwing from 75 feet. He experienced some slight discomfort, which general manager Kim Ng referred to as bursitis, during his throwing program in between bullpen sessions two weeks ago. Pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre Jr. said on June 5 that MLB Pipeline's No. 12 overall prospect isn’t ready to go on a rehab assignment yet. (Last updated: June 14)
