The Miami Marlins and Chicago White Sox start off a three-game weekend series in an interesting situation. This is the first time the two teams will face off since 2010. The Marlins are 5-4 lifetime versus the White Sox, but this matchup is a little different. It will be Tom Koehler facing a returning John Danks.

John Danks makes his first start of the season after a year-long recovery from arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Before then, Danks had had about a season's worth of bad play, so it will be interesting to see if anything's changed against a bad Marlins offense.

Notes

- This game will not be on local television tonight. For those of us with MLB.tv, you can follow along with Hawk Harrelson and the Chicago White Sox broadcasting crew. At your own risk, of course.

- I will not be along for most, if not all of tonight's game. I am out for a dinner at around 8 PM EST.
