LOS ANGELES -- Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez was put on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of a sprained right elbow, spurring worries that his injury might be even more severe. Air Max 95 Sale Canada . The 21-year-old Fernandez was the NL Rookie of the Year last season. He is 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA in eight starts this year. Several young pitchers have recently had elbow problems and needed Tommy John surgery. Matt Harvey, Stephen Strasburg and Patrick Corbin are among the All-Stars who have had the ligament transplant operation that can take 12 to 18 months for recovery. "Thats probably what everyone is going to talk about and continue to talk about," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said before Monday nights game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. "Weve protected him. Weve been consistent in how weve used him, with his workload. Weve given him extra days. Thats a question I dont think anybody has the answer to." Fernandez had been scheduled to start Wednesday at Dodger Stadium. "He definitely wasnt going to throw (Sundays scheduled bullpen session at San Diego) with a sore arm. Were going to take every precaution necessary. He said he felt discomfort. So immediately, were getting him the treatment and the rest he needs," Redmond said. "I think youre always concerned when youre talking about elbows. Thats something we have to wait to find out. But I think were always concerned about that with pitchers, especially," he said. Fernandez made 28 starts last year, going 12-6 with a major league-best .182 opponents batting average. His 2.19 ERA was second in the majors behind three-time defending ERA champ Clayton Kershaw. Fernandez struck out 187 in 172 2-3 innings. "You see how much he means, so much to our team and our rotation and really all of baseball. Hes been a dynamic player. Hes been a huge lift and a huge spark for our team. We just hope everything goes well and he just has to take a little bit of a break," Redmond said. The Marlins recalled left-hander Dan Jennings from Triple-A New Orleans. He made 79 relief appearances for the Marlins over the previous three seasons, going 3-5 with a 2.96 ERA. Cheap Air Max 95 Canada . On Monday night, many fans in this city placed the blame squarely on the captain for his role in the James Neal overtime winner against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Air Max 95 Wholesale Canada .C. -- After turning Tobacco Road into "Raleigh Top," Tennessee is headed to the round of 16. PITTSBURGH -- Olli Maattas slap shot beat Michal Neuvirth with less than 2 minutes remaining and the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied by the Washington Capitals 4-3 Wednesday night. Maattas fourth goal of the season gave Pittsburgh its only lead as the Penguins won their 13th straight home game, a club record. Jussi Jokinen, Taylor Pyatt and Kris Letang also scored for the Penguins. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots to pick up his NHL-leading 27th victory. Alexander Ovechkins 34th goal of the season gave Washington a 3-2 lead midway through the third period but the Capitals collapsed over the final 10 minutes. Brooks Laich and Jason Chimera also scored for Washington, which lost for the seventh time in nine games. Neuvirth made 33 stops, but didnt see Maattas blast from the point with 1:54 left. Pittsburgh extended its lead over the rest of the field in the Metropolitan Division to a whopping 18 points over Washington and Philadelphia by continuing to find a way to win at Consol Energy Center. Over much of the first two periods it was difficult to tell which team was coming off a shootout loss in a different building the night before and which one was playing for the first time this week. Washington has one of the games top power plays, but Laich provided a short-handed tally when he took advantage of a turnover by Letang to ignite a two-on-two break that ended with Laich all alone in front of Fleury. A flick of Laichs wrist later the Penguins were trailing, a rarity during their run of home dominance. Letang atoned 9:53 into the second period, ending a Pittsburgh rush by taking a deft drop pass from Sidney Crosby and throwing a puck att the net that deflected off two Capitals before sneaking by Neuvirth to tie it.

Chimera put Washington back in front less than five minutes later, easily tapping in a centring pass from Marcus Johansson. Pittsburgh pulled even with 3:52 left in the second as Pyatt scored for the first time since April 23, 2013, when he was a fourth-line forward for the New York Rangers. Maatta did the hard work, faking a shot from the point then skating around a fallen defender before setting Pyatt up in the left circle. It set the stage for another frenetic finish for a rivalry that should be rekindled anew with the two teams back in the same division under the NHLs realignment. Ovechkin put Washington back in front 8:35 into the third with a remarkable goal. He had his stick smacked out of his hands during a Washington rush then scrambled to pick it up just in time to receive a pass from Johansson. Fleury was no match for Ovechkins wrist shot as the Capitals went in front for the third time. And the last time. Brandon Sutter threaded a beautiful backhand pass through the crease to Jokinen for the Finnish Olympians 13th goal of the year 11:35 into the third before Maatta, a 19-year-old rookie who also will play for Finland in Sochi, provided the most electric moment of his breakout season. NOTES: The Penguins have won seven of the last eight meetings between the teams. ... Pittsburgh F Craig Adams played in his 254th straight game, tied for the fourth-longest streak in club history. ... Ovechkin has 23 goals in 33 regular-season games against Pittsburgh. ...
