|Carter Capps begins rehab assignment |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/26/14) Marlins reliever Carter Capps, working his way back from a sprained elbow, made his rehab debut Monday for the team's Gulf Coast League affiliate.
Capps started the game and retired two of the three batters he faced, while walking one and striking out one. Capps has been out since May as a result of the injury, and at this point a timetable for his return to the majors is not yet known.

|Carter Capps seeking second opinion on elbow |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/30/14) Marlins reliever Carter Capps is set to receive a second opinion on his sprained right elbow, as manager Mike Redmond told MLB.com Friday.
Capps had an MRI taken Monday that revealed a sprain. He has been shut down for four weeks, and the hope is that a second opinion will confirm that prognosis.
|Carter Capps burst onto the prospect scene during a breakout season in 2012. The 2011 third-round pick went 2-3 with a 1.23 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 19 saves over 39 appearances between Double-A and Triple-A. He also struck out 13.1 batters per nine innings and had a 6.25 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Capps would even make his MLB debut in 2012, posting a 3.96 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 25 innings over 18 appearances for the Mariners. Unfortunately, Capps had a lot of ups and downs in his first full major-league season in 2013. While he continued to post a great strikeout rate (10.1 K/9), he dealt with some command issues (3.5 BB/9) and was hit hard (11.1 H/9). Capps was also burned by the long ball, yielding 12 home runs in 59 innings. After posting a 5.49 ERA and 1.63 WHIP last season, the Mariners shipped the hard-throwing right-hander to the Marlins in the offseason in exchange for Logan Morrison. While Capps has the potential one day to develop into an MLB closer, he still has some issues to iron out. Capps has marginal Fantasy appeal on Draft Day.
