Marlins send hurt pitcher Rea back to Padres

The Miami Marlins are shipping newly acquired right-hander Colin Rea back to the San Diego Padres after he only pitched 3 1/3 innings with Miami before getting injured.

Rea was acquired Friday in a seven-player trade with the Padres that also sent right-hander Andrew Cashner to Miami. The Marlins are keeping Cashner and sending Rea back in a new deal.

The Marlins get pitching prospect Luis Castillo back, who was in the original deal for Rea. Castillo, a 23-year-old right-hander, was 7-3 with a 2.25 ERA in 100 innings pitched for Jupiter, the Marlins' Class-A team in the Florida State League at the time of Friday's trade.

Rea was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow sprain on Sunday.

Rea pitched 3⅓ scoreless innings and allowed one hit against the St. Louis Cardinals before he left Saturday's game. He said he first felt pain warming up before the game.
