Rea was dealt to the Marlins as a part of the seven-player trade which involved him and Andrew Cashner as the primary pieces. Rea left in the fourth inning of his first start with the Marlins, however, suffering elbow problems. He was subsequently placed on the disabled list with a sprained elbow. He said he felt pain while warming up before the game.
