The Marlins are expected to place closer A.J. Ramos on the 15-day disabled list with a jammed finger, Andy Slater of 940-AM WINZ reports. [Update: It’s a fractured finger, per Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.]

Ramos, 29, has recorded the save in 32 of 34 opportunities for the Marlins this season while posting a 3.05 ERA and a 56/26 K/BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings.

Fernando Rodney was used in a save situation on Sunday and should be expected to fill in at closer while Ramos is out. The Marlins acquired Rodney from the Padres at the end of June. Slater also notes that the Marlins are expected to option reliever Hunter Cervenka, acquired from the Braves on Saturday, to Triple-A New Orleans.
