Ttankersley JUPITER, Fla. — Marlins confirmed reliever Taylor Tankersley has been shut down for a week due to left shoulder inflammation.

So down goes a big lefty as news of Josh Johnson being out for an extended period of time.

"Multiple league sources told MLB.com Wednesday night that Johnson has a nerve problem in his throwing elbow. Already expected to be on the disabled list by Opening Day, those sources added that Johnson could miss a significant portion of the season."  Joe Frisaro/mlb.com

The spring training fight for the 5th and 6th starters is now on.  I’m looking close at former Cub, Mitre to step it up this month and win a spot in the rotation.
