Taylor Tankersley, the Marlins top lefty specialist out of the pen, is going to be taking it easy in Spring Training — due to inflammation in his left shoulder.
The prognosis is simply rest. For the next 7-10 days, he will not be allowed to pick up a ball, but will instead focus on allowing the shoulder to heal.
He suffered a similar set back in 2005, where he missed the first two months due to inflammation. The Marlins chose to err on the side of caution with their newly drafted prospect.
Fredi Gonzalez has mentioned the possibility of going with an extended spring training scenario, where the lefty will get some innings at the end of spring training and be used sparingly, and not on back to back nights, to start the season.
