MIAMI -- The Marlins placed right-handed reliever Carter Capps on the 15-day disabled list prior to Monday's contest and, in turn, selected the contract of right-hander Brian Ellington from Triple-A New Orleans.
Capps -- who exited Sunday's 5-2 win vs. the Padres at Marlins Park with right elbow stiffness after coming on in the eighth inning and throwing 13 pitches -- had an MRI on Monday morning. He called the DL stint "more precautionary," adding that his arm "feels great" and he has "full range of motion."
