Devers hit the injured list with right shoulder discomfort Monday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
The injury forced Devers to exit in the fourth inning of Sunday's game against Atlanta and will now shut him down for at least 10 days. Whether or not he's in contention to return when first eligible is not yet clear. He wasn't filling a significant role for the Marlins, starting just two of the last eight games, so his absence is unlikely to significantly shake up the team's depth chart.
Devers was removed prior to the top of fourth inning of Sunday's game against Atlanta with right shoulder discomfort, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. He went 0-for-1 at the plate before departing.
Devers may have suffered an aggravation of the injury that has rendered him day-to-day for much of June, so depending on the severity of the setback, a trip to the injured list could be in the forecast. The 21-year-old has played a bit role in the Miami infield since being promoted from Triple-A Jacksonville on May 23, appearing in 13 games while going 9-for-29 (.310 average).
Devers has been playing through a minor shoulder issue, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
The exact nature of the issue is unclear, but it's evidently not enough to send him to the injured list. The Marlins are managing his playing time carefully due to the injury, as he's started just once in the team's last six games, but there's no guarantee he'd be in the lineup regularly even if fully healthy. Devers owns a .636 OPS through 45 plate appearances this season.
Devers went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in Friday's 9-2 loss to Pittsburgh.
The 21-year-old accounted for both of Miami's runs on a two-RBI double in the second inning. Devers has slashed .258/.314/.355 with no home runs, four RBI and five runs scored in 35 plate appearances. He's expected to feature mainly in a bench role in the near term.
Devers is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Pirates, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Devers had been included in the lineup in three of the previous four games, though he benefited in part from the shaky health of Jazz Chisholm, who sat out two of those contests. Now that Chisholm is healthy again, Devers is expected to be a full-time bench player while he's up with the big club.
Devers was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The 21-year-old will rejoin the Marlins with Isan Diaz (undisclosed) landing on the injured list. Devers should provide infield depth for Miami until Diaz is cleared to return.
Devers was optioned off the active roster Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Devers will be the one to make way so that Daniel Castano can be called up to start Saturday's game against the Brewers. He earned his first career call-up in late April but didn't receive regular playing time, going 2-for-12 at the plate across eight games.
Devers was recalled by the Marlins on Thursday.
The Marlins placed Brian Anderson (oblique) on the 10-day injured list Thursday and are also without Garrett Cooper (groin) for the time being. As a result, Devers will get his first call to the majors. His last official game action was with High-A Jupiter, so his adjustment to the big-league level could take some time.
The Marlins optioned Devers to their minor-league camp Tuesday, Ethan Budowsky of FishStripes.com reports.
The 21-year-old shortstop is expected to open the season at Double-A Pensacola or Triple-A Jacksonville. Devers previously split time between the rookie-ball, Low-A and High-A levels during his last minor-league season in 2019, producing a collective .322/.391/.390 slash line in 47 games.
Devers was added to the Marlins' 40-man roster Friday.
Devers was part of the Marlins' 60-man player pool in 2020, and he'll now be protected from the Rule 5 draft. The 20-year-old is one of the best defensive shortstops in the organization, but he'll need to demonstrate more production at the plate in 2021.
Devers is part of the Marlins' 60-man player pool, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
One of the best defensive shortstops in the Marlins' farm system, Devers lacks physicality and will need to provide more offensive impact than he has shown thus far to profile as an everyday player. His plus speed and quality defense could be an asset for Miami in a pinch, but he is unlikely to see much, if any, MLB time in 2020.
The Marlins reassigned Devers to their minor-league camp Tuesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Though Devers received the opportunity to take part in his first big-league camp, he wasn't a serious candidate to make the Opening Day roster after having never played above the High-A level. He could open the upcoming campaign at Double-A Jacksonville after posting a .749 OPS in 138 plate appearances in the Florida State League a season ago.
Devers was invited to the Marlins' big-league camp Tuesday.
Devers will work with the big-league coaching staff for a few weeks, though he's not particularly close to joining the group for good. The 20-year-old hasn't played beyond the High-A level, though he looked good there last year in 33 games for Jupiter, hitting .325/.384/.365. The middle infielder is fast and has a good glove, though he's hit just a single professional home run in three seasons.
Devers (groin) was activated from the minor-league injured list Thursday.
Devers wound up spending just nine days on the shelf with a groin injury. The 19-year-old shortstop will look to pick up where he left off prior to landing on the IL; through 10 games with High-A Jupiter this season, Devers owns a .326/.356/.395 slash line with a pair of stolen bases.
Devers landed on High-A Jupiter's 7-day injured list Tuesday due to a groin issue, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Devers apparently suffered the groin injury while running the bases recently. The Marlins are hopeful the 19-year-old shortstop will only be in store for a brief absence.
