LOS ANGELES - It's the last thing any Marlins fan would want to hear.
Star pitcher Jose Fernandez is heading to the 15-day disabled list.
The team says he has a right elbow strain.
Fernandez had a rough start in San Diego over the weekend.
Fernandez will head back to Miami for an MRI.
According to a Miami Herald report, Fernandez will require season-ending surgery on his elbow.
Fernandez has been the catalyst to the Marlins surprisingly strong start to the season.
