Miami Marlins left-hander Braxton Garrett was placed on the 15-day injured list on Sunday due to a forearm flexor strain.

Garrett, 26, was scheduled to start on Sunday against the visiting Seattle Mariners but was scratched on Saturday because of elbow discomfort. The move is retroactive to Thursday.

To fill Garrett’s spot, right-hander Kyle Tyler was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville and started Sunday’s game.

Garrett, a first-round pick (No. 7 overall) by the Marlins in 2016, began this season on the IL with a left shoulder impingement and made his season debut on May 12. In seven starts in 2024, he has a 2-2 record with a 5.35 ERA over 37 innings.

Over parts of five seasons with Miami, Garrett has a 16-19 record with a 4.03 ERA in 65 games (63 starts) covering 326 1/3 innings.

Tyler, 27, has pitched in one game for the Marlins this season, allowing one run in a two-inning relief appearance. In eight games with the Los Angeles Angels (2021), San Diego Padres (2022), and Marlins, Tyler has a 1-0 record with a 2.45 ERA over 18 1/3 innings.

In a separate move involving their Triple-A affiliate, the Marlins optioned right-hander Shaun Anderson and selected the contract of left-hander Kent Emanuel. Anderson has a 15.19 ERA in two starts this season, while Emanuel has a 7.56 ERA in four relief appearances.
