Righty makes eighth career trip to DL
The move is retroactive to Wednesday. Beckett developed the blister on Tuesday, leaving after 5 1/3 innings of the Marlins' 14-0 loss at the Cubs.
It's the eighth trip to the disabled list for Beckett, who's in his fourth full major-league season. Six of those stints have been because of blisters.
Florida recalled right-hander Nate Bump from Triple-A Albuquerque to replace Beckett on the roster.
Beckett, the 2003 World Series MVP, is 7-5 with a 3.35 ERA this season. Bump was 0-3 with a 3.51 ERA in 21 relief appearances for Florida earlier this year.
