Marlins' Jose Devers: Designated for assignment
Devers was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Tuesday.
Devers made his MLB debut in 2021 but spent last season at Double-A Pensacola, and the Marlins won't keep him on the 40-man roster after he posted a .210/.265/.313 slash line in 58 games.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Reinstated, optioned to minors
The Marlins activated Devers (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list Monday and optioned him to Double-A Pensacola, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Devers opened the season on the shelf while he continued to recover from August surgery to address a rotator cuff issue in his right shoulder. His recovery program lingered into the first month of the campaign before he began a rehab assignment at Single-A Jupiter last week. Devers' shoulder apparently responded well to his two games in Jupiter, but since Miami didn't have a spot for him on the big-league roster, he'll play regularly at the Double-A level with the hope of earning a call-up to the majors at some point later on in the season....

Marlins' Jose Devers: Ready for game action
Devers (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Jupiter on Thursday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
He'll take part in his first game action since last July, after he was shut down with a torn labrum in his right shoulder that later required surgery. Due to his extended absence, Devers will likely remain on his rehab assignment for close to the full 20-day window before the Marlins activate him from the 10-day injured list. Once Miami reinstates him, Devers will likely be optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville or Double-A Pensacola.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Returns to live at-bats
Devers (shoulder) is serving as the designated hitter in extended spring training games, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Devers has been ramping up in recent weeks, engaging in live batting practice and increasing his throwing distance. He's now taking live at-bats, though he'll likely need to prove capable of playing competent defense prior to being activated. Devers is expected to begin his season at Triple-A Jacksonville once fully cleared.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Close to game action
Devers (shoulder) has steadily increased his throwing distance off flat ground and could be ready to play in games at extended spring training, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
While he's worked his way through a throwing program as he makes his way back from labrum surgery, Devers has simultaneously been taking batting practice. He may already be capable of serving as a designated hitter, but the Marlins presumably want to see Devers play third base comfortably before activating him from the 10-day injured list. Unless the Marlins endure a barrage of injuries at the corner-infield spots once Devers is ready to come off the IL, the 22-year-old will likely be optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville at the conclusion of his rehab assignment....

Marlins' Jose Devers: Throwing and hitting again
Devers (shoulder) has been throwing at 90 feet and taking live batting practice at extended spring training in recent days, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Devers is gradually upping his throwing distance and increasing his baseball activities, but he still doesn't appear to be particularly close to beginning a minor-league rehab assignment. Once he's cleared for game action, Devers will likely use nearly all of his 20-day rehab window in the minors, considering that he missed all of spring training and most of the second half of the 2021 season while recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder....

Marlins' Jose Devers: Begins season on injured list
The Marlins placed Devers (shoulder) on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Devers is still in rehab mode from the surgery he required last August to address right shoulder impingement syndrome, a conditioned related to the rotator cuff. The 22-year-old had been throwing in spring training, but he didn't feature in any of the Marlins' Grapefruit League games. He's likely multiple weeks away from being ready to return from the IL....

Marlins' Jose Devers: On throwing program
Manager Don Mattingly said Saturday that Devers (shoulder) is on a throwing program and hasn't yet been cleared to throw in games, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Devers missed the second half of the 2021 season due to a shoulder injury and underwent surgery to repair a posterior labrum tear in his right shoulder in mid-August. With just under three weeks remaining until Opening Day, it's possible that he'll require a stint on the injured list to begin the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Undergoes shoulder surgery
Devers underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a posterior labrum tear in his right shoulder, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Devers first landed on the shelf in mid-June with the shoulder injury and was pulled from his rehab assignment a month later after suffering a setback. The Marlins haven't announced a timeline for his return, though the 21-year-old shouldn't be expected to return this season after undergoing significant shoulder surgery.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Shifts to 60-day IL
Devers (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Devers was recently pulled from his rehab assignment with Triple-A Jacksonville, and he apparently suffered a setback that will prolong his absence. The 21-year-old landed on the 10-day IL with right shoulder inflammation June 14, so he won't be eligible to return until mid-August.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Rehab paused
Devers (shoulder) was removed from his rehab assignment and will continue his recovery at the Marlins' spring training facility, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Devers has missed over a month with a shoulder issue. He's played in three rehab games, though the latest came back on July 8. He's presumably suffered some sort of setback, but the Marlins have yet to elaborate on the move.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Begins rehab assignment
Devers (shoulder) will report to Triple-A Jacksonville to begin a rehab assignment Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Devers landed on the shelf in mid-June with right shoulder discomfort, but he's nearing his return to the Marlins, although the club has acquired another utility infielder in Joe Panik in the meantime. The 21-year-old should only require a few rehab appearances given the brevity of his absence.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Resumes baseball activities
Devers (shoulder) was cleared to take batting practice and resume defensive drills earlier this week, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The 21-year-old rookie looks like he'll be headed for an abbreviated stay on the 10-day injured list after he was shut down June 14 with right shoulder inflammation. Once activated, Devers will likely fill a utility role for the Marlins, if he isn't immediately optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Placed on injured list
Devers hit the injured list with right shoulder discomfort Monday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
The injury forced Devers to exit in the fourth inning of Sunday's game against Atlanta and will now shut him down for at least 10 days. Whether or not he's in contention to return when first eligible is not yet clear. He wasn't filling a significant role for the Marlins, starting just two of the last eight games, so his absence is unlikely to significantly shake up the team's depth chart.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Shoulder flares up again
Devers was removed prior to the top of fourth inning of Sunday's game against Atlanta with right shoulder discomfort, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. He went 0-for-1 at the plate before departing.
Devers may have suffered an aggravation of the injury that has rendered him day-to-day for much of June, so depending on the severity of the setback, a trip to the injured list could be in the forecast. The 21-year-old has played a bit role in the Miami infield since being promoted from Triple-A Jacksonville on May 23, appearing in 13 games while going 9-for-29 (.310 average).... See More ...

Marlins' Jose Devers: Playing through shoulder issue
Devers has been playing through a minor shoulder issue, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
The exact nature of the issue is unclear, but it's evidently not enough to send him to the injured list. The Marlins are managing his playing time carefully due to the injury, as he's started just once in the team's last six games, but there's no guarantee he'd be in the lineup regularly even if fully healthy. Devers owns a .636 OPS through 45 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Knocks in both runs in loss
Devers went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two RBI in Friday's 9-2 loss to Pittsburgh.
The 21-year-old accounted for both of Miami's runs on a two-RBI double in the second inning. Devers has slashed .258/.314/.355 with no home runs, four RBI and five runs scored in 35 plate appearances. He's expected to feature mainly in a bench role in the near term.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Losing work with Chisholm back
Devers is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Pirates, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Devers had been included in the lineup in three of the previous four games, though he benefited in part from the shaky health of Jazz Chisholm, who sat out two of those contests. Now that Chisholm is healthy again, Devers is expected to be a full-time bench player while he's up with the big club.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Back in big leagues
Devers was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The 21-year-old will rejoin the Marlins with Isan Diaz (undisclosed) landing on the injured list. Devers should provide infield depth for Miami until Diaz is cleared to return.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jose Devers: Optioned to minors
Devers was optioned off the active roster Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Devers will be the one to make way so that Daniel Castano can be called up to start Saturday's game against the Brewers. He earned his first career call-up in late April but didn't receive regular playing time, going 2-for-12 at the plate across eight games.... See More ... See Less
