Marlins ace pitcher Jose Fernandez goes on disabled list

The Miami Marlins have put ace right-hander Jose Fernandez on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained elbow.

The Marlins made the move Monday. Last season's National League rookie of the year was scheduled to start Wednesday against the Dodgers.

The 21-year-old Fernandez is 4-2 with a 2.44 earned-run average in eight starts.

Fernandez made 28 starts last year, going 12-6 with a major league-best .182 opponents' batting average. His 2.19 ERA was second in the majors behind three-time defending ERA champ Clayton Kershaw. Fernandez struck out 187 in 172 innings.
