Colin Rea was a member of the Miami Marlins for four days.

The Marlins traded the right-handed pitcher from Cascade back to the San Diego Padres in exchange for minor-league pitcher Luis Castillo. Rea and Castillo were part of a seven-player trade last Friday.

Rea left his only Marlins start the following night after 3 1/3 innings because of an elbow strain. He was scheduled for a comprehensive MRI of the elbow Monday.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported the Marlins were “absolutely livid” and felt they were traded damaged goods.

According to MLB.com, the Padres are adamant that Rea’s elbow was healthy at the time of the trade. The report said the Marlins “had access to all of Rea’s medical records in advance, and, like the Padres, they saw nothing wrong with his elbow.”

Rea has a 4.82 earned run average in 20 appearances this season, including 19 starts.
