Marlins starter Kevin Slowey exited Wednesday night's game against Philadelphia before the sixth inning because of a strained left lat muscle.
The team said Slowey was day to day.
Slowey took the mound following the fifth inning and began to warm up. He then motioned toward the Marlins dugout and shook his head.
Miami manager Mike Redmond then came on the field, spoke with the umpires and removed Slowey. Wade LeBlanc replaced Slowey.
Miami trailed 1-0 when Slowey left. Slowey gave up six hits, including Delmon Young's fourth-inning home run, and struck out six.

Miami Marlins right-handed starting pitcher Kevin Slowey made an early exit from last night's appearance against the Philadelphia Phillies due to a strained left lat muscle, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com.
Following the game, the Marlins describe the ailment as an intercostal strain. The injury -- which resulted in Slowey's removal after five innings of work -- has...
The Miami Marlins have seen enough of Jon Rauch for 2013, which is why they have sent him packing. Rauch, who was designated for assignment a few days back has been horrible this season. With pitching being as thing as it is though throughout baseball it would not come as a shock to FFLockerRoom if Rauch was given another chance by someone. He posted a 7.56 ERA to go along with a...
MIAMI Dont be so fast to label Miami Marlins right-hander Alex Sanabia the majors latest spitballer.
Social media was abuzz Tuesday after TV cameras caught Sanabia spitting on a baseball after giving up a home run to Philadelphias Domonic Brown in the second inning of Miamis 5-1 victory Monday night.
The video shows Sanabia spitting on and then rubbing a new ball as he walks onto...
The Marlins are cheaters and that is why they are doing so well this year! Eh? Actually this is just a very slow sports day so we figured a little spitball controversy was a good idea. Alex Sanabia of the Marlins is the culprit and spit was his weapon.

After that point, Lee kept the Marlins’ bats mostly quiet and scattered only three total hits in the game. Kevin Slowey who started for Miami was pitching well before being lifted in the sixth...

BREAK UP THE POWERHOUSE MARLINS!!!
Apparently this Miami Marlins team is supposed to be pretty bad. You wouldn’t know it from watching the Phillies last three contests...
Well, sort of.
This past Friday the Miami Marlins designated former-Met Jon Rauch for assignment and in the past 24 hours there have been conflicting reports regarding his potential release. If talk of his release is accurate, the Mets should be biting.
As my colleague Ed Leyro pointed out back in February, this Mets ballclub doesn’t quite measure up in comparison to last year...
