Cooper (wrist) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
There was a thought that Cooper may be able to return sometime in April given that he's only expected to be in a cast until around April 16, but he'll now have to sit out until June as a result of the new designation. No word has come forth as to whether the first baseman has encountered a setback in his rehab or not. This move allowed the Marlins to add J.B. Shuck to the active roster.
Cooper (wrist) saw a hand specialist Monday and will be in a cast for a week, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Cooper managed to avoid any fractures in his injured wrist, but it seems as if the hand specialist he saw still wants him to take extra precautions. This new wrinkle means that the earliest Cooper can return to action will be next Monday, a few days after he's first eligible to return. It's unclear if he'll need a few extra days to get back into the swing of things once he gets the cast off, though.
Cooper was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right wrist contusion, retroactive to April 2, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
He was hit on the wrist by a pitch on March 30, and while he saw three at-bats in the games following, it sounds like this move did not come as a surprise to the Marlins beat writers. It was already confirmed that he did not suffer a fracture, so he may be able to return when first eligible on April 13 (the Marlins are off on April 12). Braxton Lee was recalled from Triple-A as a corresponding move. Lee will serve as the fourth outfielder while Cooper heals up.
Cooper (wrist) is back in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Cooper started the first two games of the season in right field, but was held out Saturday after an HBP forced an early exit Friday. Fortunately for Cooper, he avoided the worst-case scenario and his MRI came back clean. It was reported Saturday that he would avoid the disabled list, and with him manning first base Sunday, the injury appears to not be a long-term concern. He'll take over at first for Justin Bour, who is being held out of action against a lefty after three straight starts.
Cooper is expected to avoid the disabled list after tests revealed he didn't fracture his right wrist when it was hit by a pitch Friday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Cameron Maybin was assigned the start in right field Saturday in place of Cooper, who should be considered day-to-day despite being plunked by Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks. The journeyman, who's off to a 1-for-4 start to the season, will occupy a starting outfield spot when healthy, per Frisaro, and could re-enter the lineup soon.
