Cooper was officially placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a right wrist sprain, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. According to Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald, Cooper said he's dealing with significant inflammation in the wrist and will likely require 2-to-4 weeks of rest before undergoing a follow-up MRI.
Until the inflammation subsides, the Marlins won't be able to determine the severity of Cooper's sprain, so his official recovery timeline remains muddled. Considering that Cooper previously missed three months this season after getting hit by a pitch on the same wrist, it wouldn't be surprising if this setback prevented him from playing again this season. The Marlins called up Magneuris Sierra from Triple-A New Orleans to take Cooper's spot on the active roster.
Cooper (wrist) will be placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday with a right wrist sprain, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
Cooper has been on the bench for each of Miami's past three games, and after undergoing an MRI he'll require a stint on the disabled list. It's unclear if he'll return after the minimum, though more news on his status should emerge in the near future. Magneuris Sierra will be recalled from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding move.
Cooper is dealing with a wrist injury Monday, Craig Davis of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Cooper is awaiting the results of an MRI, which should give more clarity about the severity of the issue. He hasn't been in the lineup for any of the Marlins' last three games, though he's far from an everyday starter, so it's difficult to read too much into that fact.
Cooper went 2-for-3 with a walk in Friday's loss to the Nationals.
Getting the start in left field against southpaw Gio Gonzalez and hitting sixth, Cooper made an immediate impact in his return from a wrist injury that had sidelined him since April 1. The 27-year-old will likely settle in on the short side of a left-field platoon with Derek Dietrich, while also filling in for Justin Bour at first base on occasion, and he could be a useful addition to NL-only and deep fantasy league rosters for the second half.
Cooper (wrist) was activated from the 10-day disabled list prior to Friday's game, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Cooper will immediately rejoin the starting lineup, manning left field and hitting sixth in the order. The outfielder hasn't played in a big-league contest since April 1 due to a right wrist contusion. Expect him to see some time at both corner-outfield positions as well as first base behind Justin Bour.
