The Miami Marlins placed left-handed starter Jesus Luzardo on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a forearm strain in his pitching arm.

The move is retroactive to May 12.

Luzardo, 24, has started six games this season and thrown 29 innings. He is 2-3 with a 4.03 ERA with 41 strikeouts.

He allowed four runs on two hits and four walks in 2 2/3 innings in his most recent start Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Luzardo said he didn't feel right following his past two starts.

"I just started feeling a little something in the San Diego game but not when I was pitching, just a little soreness after," Luzardo said, per the Miami Herald. "I kind of backed off a little bit. Arizona didn't feel anything, but it was sore and tougher to bounce back. We just want to get on top of it so we can get it back to 100 percent."

Luzardo was scheduled to start Monday against the Washington Nationals. Now, right-hander Cody Poteet is expected to get the nod.
