Miami Marlins RP Carter Capps (elbow) is expected to have Tommy John surgery Tuesday, March 8, according to president of baseball operations Mike Hill. Capps has a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow.
Fantasy Tip: Capps is expected to miss the 2016 season, which gives A.J. Ramos a clear line to the closer role. Ramos is dealing with a minor calf issue and has yet to appear in a spring game. He had a great season in 2015 with 32 saves, a 2.30 ERA, a 1.01 WHIP and an 11.13 K/9. Ramos, if his calf injury doesn't limit him much longer, is a low-end RP2 consideration.

Miami Marlins RP Carter Capps (elbow) is expected to sit out for an undisclosed time period with a sore right elbow. He missed the last two months of last year and three months in 2014 with the same issue.
Fantasy Tip: Capps' unusual pitching delivery puts a lot of stress on his elbow, so this isn't a huge shock. He's seeking medical opinion, so stay tuned on his diagnosis. He could need Tommy John surgery, which would end his year. His injury gives A.J. Ramos more value as a late-game closing option.
