Marlins' Junichi Tazawa: Hits DL with rib injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tazawa was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with rib cartilage inflammation, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Tazawa may have sustained the injury during his most recent appearance Monday against the Astros, when he served up a grand slam in relief to take his first loss of the season. The severity of Tazawa's rib issue is unclear, so it's possible he'll need more than the minimum 10 days to recover. With Tazawa hitting the DL, Brian Ellington was promoted from Triple-A New Orleans to provide some extra depth in the bullpen.

Marlins' Junichi Tazawa: Bound for disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tazawa (undisclosed) is expected to be placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

The Marlins haven't shed much light on Tazawa's injury, but it's worth noting that the move to the DL comes on the heels after an ugly relief appearance in Monday's loss to the Astros, during which he put four runners on base and surrendered a grand slam. More information about the injury should be provided when Tazawa is officially placed on the DL later Wednesday. Brian Ellington is expected to be recalled from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding move to help fortify the bullpen.

Marlins' Junichi Tazawa: Allows four runs in loss to Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tazawa (1-1) allowed four runs on two hits and a walk in the sixth inning of Monday's loss to Houston.

With a 6.60 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 6.6 K/9 Tazawa is well off the fantasy radar, and he's been especially susceptible to the long ball. He allowed his fourth home run of the season Monday and sports a 2.4 HR/9 for the campaign.

Marlins' Junichi Tazawa: Rough start to season continues Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tazawa gave up two hits, including a game-tying solo home run to Ender Inciarte, and struck out one in an inning of work Wednesday during an eventual 5-4 loss to the Braves.

It was officially his first blown save of the season, but unofficially Tazawa been a free-agent bust so far, getting scored upon in three of his first four appearances as a Marlin to saddle him with a 9.00 ERA. Manager Don Mattingly may have little choice but to move the 30-year-old into a lower-leverage role if he doesn't turn things around quickly.

Marlins' Junichi Tazawa: Working on arm angle this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tazawa will work on lowering his arm angle this spring, The Sun-Sentinel reports. "He's navigating through," pitching coach Juan Nieves said. "I think there's a little bit of work to be done, but I think with the youth here, he's a great complement for us. He could be used in a shorter role, less stressful innings."

Nieves was Tazawa's pitching coach in Boston in 2013-14, the reliever's best seasons in the majors, and he feels that Tazawa's arm angle has gotten too high over the last couple of years. More concerning for his fantasy value is the suggestion that he is only fourth of fifth in the bullpen pecking order for the Marlins, and won't see many high-leverage situations behind A.J. Ramos, Brad Ziegler and Kyle Barraclough. Tazawa has recorded at least 16 holds in each of the last four seasons, but could have a tough time keeping that streak alive in a lesser role for Miami.
