Jesus Luzardo Progressing Slowly

Miami Marlins starting pitcher Jesus Luzardo (back) is doing bike workouts and working on forearm and shoulder strengthening. Working his way back from a lumbar stress reaction in his back, Luzardo appears to be progressing slowly and is not eligible to come off the 60-day injured list until mid-August. The 26-year-old southpaw could theoretically begin a minor-league rehab assignment at some point in early August, but he'll need to resume a throwing program before any thought of that comes to mind. Given the possibility that Luzardo may not be a member of the last-place Marlins by the time he's ready to return, he remains an interesting stash in most fantasy leagues with the idea he could be playing for a contender in the aftermath of the trade deadline at the end of July.

Teams Inquiring About Jesus Luzardo

Miami Marlins left-hander Jesus Luzardo (back) is on the 60-day injured list until at least Aug. 18 with a lumbar stress reaction in his back, but it hasn't stopped teams from inquiring about his availability with the trade deadline approaching at the end of this month. Interested clubs believe he'd still make an impact in the pennant stretch and the postseason. Luzardo went 3-6 with a bloated 5.00 ERA (4.27 FIP) and 1.24 WHIP with 58 strikeouts and 22 walks in 66 2/3 innings in 12 starts this year before injuring his back. It hasn't been pretty, but he's still stash-worthy in most fantasy leagues after he posted a career-high 208 strikeouts and a 3.58 ERA in 178 2/3 frames over 32 starts in his second full season for the Fish in 2023. If healthy and pitching for a contender in the second half, Luzardo would have even more fantasy upside.

Jesus Luzardo Moved To 60-Day Injured List

Miami Marlins starter Jesus Luzardo (back) was moved to the 60-day injured list on Sunday morning. The 26-year-old was originally placed on the 15-day injured list on Saturday afternoon after he was scratched from his scheduled start. He is set to miss around four-to-six weeks due to a lumbar stress reaction. It is Luzardo's second stint on the IL this year and another injury for a battered Marlins rotation. It has not been a banner year for Luzardo in the first place as he owns a 5.00 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 58:22 K:BB across 12 starts. It is unclear how the Marlins plan to set their rotation as they currently have six starters on the IL. Luzardo should be able to return right around the All-Star break barring any setbacks, but he has not been the most reliable fantasy asset even when healthy.
