Things haven’t gone according to plan for the Miami Marlins this season.

After a 2023 season that saw the team go 84-78 in their first season under manager Skip Schumaker and sneak into the playoffs as the NL Wild Card, many wondered if the Fish would be able to replicate the success.

So far, though, that hasn’t proven to be the case. Miami enters play Thursday with an 0-7 record on the season, making them one of two winless teams in MLB, along with their NL East foes the New York Mets, who are 0-4 and have had multiple games rained out already.

More bad news came Miami’s way Thursday, as the team announced that former top pitching prospect Eury Pérez would miss the entirety of the 2024 season as he will undergo Tommy John Surgery.

Pérez first told the team he had discomfort in his elbow on March 15, a day after leaving a spring training start with a broken fingernail. The team sent him to Texas to see a specialist who diagnosed the pitcher with inflammation but cleared him to play catch.

After a bullpen session led to more discomfort, Pérez returned to Texas to see the specialist again, where it was determined he would need Tommy John Surgery, taking him out for all of the 2024 season and possibly some of the 2025 season, as well.

Pérez recorded 108 strikeouts in 91 innings pitched for the Marlins last season and was set to be a part of the team’s rotation again in 2024.
