Max Meyer Injury

Only 10 pitches were thrown in Max Meyer’s second MLB start for the Miami Marlins. With two outs in the first inning of Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park, the Miami Marlins’ 2020 first-round pick left the game due to right elbow pain. With two outs, Meyer said he felt the stiffness in his elbow during the Ke’Bryan Hayes plate appearance, and he knew he couldn’t go any further than that.

It ended up taking him four pitches to walk Hayes before he left the field and signaled to the dugout. Coach Mel Stottlemyre Jr. arrived on the mound with manager Don Mattingly and athletic trainer Lee Meyer before Meyer departed for the dugout.

As Mattingly noted, “it’s never good or it looks very good” when a man emerges in such a manner. As a side note, it’s worth noting that Meyer missed nearly a month of this season’s Triple-A Jacksonville season due to right ulnar nerve irritation.

Meyer’s MRI results won’t tell the Marlins if the newest ailment is an extension of the previous one or something altogether new. As Meyer expressed his hope for a speedy return, he added, Right now, I have no idea.”

The first of Miami’s five relief pitchers, Zach Pop, came in to relieve Meyer and got the final out of the first inning before pitching through the second. This time, Tommy Nance got the win.

After Richard Bleier had pitched two shutout innings, the game was called due to rain. It was Tanner Scott’s turn to pitch the sixth and seventh inning, giving up the game’s lone run in the process.

The eighth inning was pitched by Dylan Floro. Meyer got Kevin Newman to pop out in the foul area and struck out Greg Allen with a slider before he was forced to leave the game.

Meyer made his Major League Baseball debut on July 16 against the Philadelphia Phillies, surrendering five runs on seven hits (including two home runs) and one walk while striking out five times in 5 1/3 innings.

A week later, he’s out for the remainder of the game due to an injury. Meyer claimed he couldn’t do anything about it. “I put in the effort. Despite the fact that I’ve been taking proper care of my arm, I’ve still been experiencing pain.
