Fernandez, with the exception of an outing against the Phillies, has been dominant on the mound. His command has been consistent and even when he doesn't have his best stuff has still found a way to get hitters out. In his last start against the Nationals, Fernandez went seven innings, giving up three unearned runs and striking out ten.

A Jayson Werth home run plagued Fernandez after the Marlins had given him an early lead.

Wood went eight innings in his last outing against Philadelphia, giving up one run and striking out seven.

Notes

-Can Miami play "small ball?" The Marlins couldn't move a runner over early on Monday, which was key in a low scoring game.

-Will Fernandez get run support? Wood hasn't given up more than two runs in his four starts, so the offense will have its hands full.
