It hasn't been exactly easy going for the Miami Marlins in 2021. The Marlins are just 26-34 overall on the year and trail the NL East division lead by 6.5 games. Injuries have begun to plague this ball club as the team now has six different key contributors shelved on the injured list.

Right fielder and first baseman Garrett Cooper is the latest to join this list, as he landed on the 10-day IL with a lumbar strain, as reported on Wednesday.

Miami will be hopeful that Cooper's back tightness is something they can began rehabbing quickly. Cooper has appeared in 52 games this season while slashing .248/.326/.394 with 7 doubles, 5 home runs and 22 RBIs.

As it stands, the Marlins own just +3200 odds to win the division, according to the latest MLB odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
