The Marlins placed Steckenrider on the 10-day injured list with inflammation in his throwing elbow.
It has been a dismal start to 2019 for Steckenrider, who is 0-2 with a 6.28 ERA and six (!) home runs allowed over just 14 1/3 innings. He can be safely left unowned in all but the deepest of leagues even when he does return.
Marlins reliever Drew Steckenrider walked one and struck out one over 2/3 innings in Friday's win over the Nationals to earn his first hold of the season.
Steckenrider was an early season favorite to close games for the Marlins, but he got off to a rocky start and will have to work his way back to the ninth inning. His fantasy appeal is limited to formats that award for holds, and even in there he does not have much appeal.
Marlins reliever Drew Steckenrider allowed two solo home runs in one inning of work against the Reds on Wednesday, earning his first blown save and second loss of the season in the process.
Steckenrider has had a rough start to the season in the back end of Miami's bullpen. He now has two losses and a blown save to go with a 9.00 ERA through his first six appearances. While once considered the favorite to close out games for the Marlins, he may be quickly falling out of favor as a late-inning option.
Marlins reliever Drew Steckenrider appeared in the seventh inning of a tie game against the Braves on Saturday, striking out two batters while not allowing a baserunner. He did not factor in the decision.
Steckenrider has now appeared in two consecutive non-save situations, with left-hander Adam Conley getting the save on Saturday. The Marlins are using a committee approach to closing games, and Steckenrider figures to split time with Sergio Romo and Conley depending on matchups, availability, and performance.
Marlins reliever Drew Steckenrider entered a tied game in the ninth inning on Monday but gave up four runs to earn the loss against the Mets.
Steckenrider allowed a three-run home run to top rookie Pete Alonso as part of his problematic inning. Steckenrider has been used in late-inning situations to start the season and could be in the conversation for save opportunities, but Monday's performance likely did not help his chances early on.
