10 Comments

Javier Vazquez has been placed on the bereavement list and there’s no timetable for his return to the Marlins, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com.

No further details were given. Vazquez struggled in last night’s start against the Phillies as his ERA ballooned to 6.68 and afterward said: “I’m embarrassed the way I’m throwing.”

Vazquez will be eligible to rejoin the active roster Friday and his next scheduled start is Sunday against the Nationals.
