The Marlins have traded injured starting pitcher Colin Rea back to the Padres in exchange for Luis Castillo, the team announced on Monday.
Miami acquired Rea and Andrew Cashner in a seven-player trade on Friday, only to see Rea sprain his elbow on Sunday. According to Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan, Miami is “livid,” and believe it received damaged goods. San Diego could face repercussions.
Cashner’s debut took place without issue. The righthander threw six innings of one-run ball in a 5–4 win over the Cardinals.
Rea was 5–5 on the year with a 4.82 ERA before heading to the disabled list.
