Manager Mike Redmond said Jacob Turner will take Henderson Alvarez's spot in the rotation. 

Perfect timing for Turner who was likely going to be bumped from the rotation in favor of Jarred Cosart. Turner will probably be on a short leash considering that he hasn't be able to figure out how to succeed as a starter in the majors. Nevertheless, he has found himself in the Marlins rotation, but the pressure will be on to get results if he wants to stay there.

Dan Jennings has recalled from Triple-A New Orleans.

Jennings was just optioned to Triple-A on Thursday, but is already headed back to Miami. This doesn't come as a surprise considering that he is the owner of a 1.15 ERA this season over 35 appearances. He will slot right back into a middle relief role.

Marlins place RHP Henderson Alvarez on 15-day disabled list (retro to July 30) with right shoulder inflammation.

A tough break for Alvarez, who has thrown three complete game shutouts this season. On top of being a workhorse, Alvarez is fourth in the National League with a 2.48 ERA. He has never been much of a strikeout pitcher, but he makes up for it in other ways. There is no timetable for his return.

According to Marlins GM Dan Jennings on Jose Fernandez: "He's in his rehab, he's mentally in a great spot. He's hanging out with the guys & that's good for all parties"

When he says "good for all parties," does that mean 'everyone involved' or is Fernandez in such good spirits that he's always a fun guy to have around for any celebratory occasion? Either way, the positive reports are always great. They don't change the fact that he'll be lost at least through the first half of next year, so don't start trying to make some "savvy stash moves" here. Take it for what it is and don't fall for the hype.

Jarred Cosart will start for the Marlins on Friday.

Cosart will face the Reds for his debut, a team that is collectively hitting just .240 against right-handed pitching with a .671 team OPS which ranks 25th in MLB. He's had his struggles here in July and hasn't pitched out of the sixth inning in any of his last four starts. The adrenaline and excitement of a change of scenery could help him, so it is possible that he returns to the form we saw in June. He's risky, that's for sure. But he could pay off in this start.

Tom Koehler was a tough luck loser Thursday as allowed just two earned runs on five hits with three strikeouts over seven innings against the Reds.

Koehler's hardship against the NL Central continued on Thursday with no help from his defense and arguably the umpiring crew, too. The righty is now 0-5 with an ERA over seven (42.1 IP/34 ER) against the National League CentraI in 11 career games. On the bright side, Koehler has allowed three or fewer runs in seven of his last eight starts. His next start will be on Wednesday on the road against the Pirates.

Marlins option Dan Jennings to Triple-A New Orleans Thursday night.

Jennings has appeared in 35 games for Miami this season and posted a 1.15 ERA. It shouldn't be long before he rejoins the big league club.

Miguel Tejada has been released by the Marlins.

This could be the end of the road for the veteran infielder. Cabrera is a lifetime .285 hitter that could find work with another club, but it isn't very likely.
