Graham Taylor Sunday's starter

Fish Bytes reports that Graham Taylor will get the nod on Sunday.

And Sunday’s pitcher will be….Graham Taylor.

            The Marlins have settled on the 24-year-old southpaw to start on Sunday against the Philadelphia Phillies in what will mark his major league debut. Taylor fills the rotation spot that belonged to Andrew Miller, who is on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique strain.

Taylor, who has gone 2-1 with a 3.24 ERA for Double A Jacksonville, is a slow thrower known for his precise control. He has averaged just 1.4 walks per nine innings over his minor-league career, which began in 2006 after the Marlins drafted him out of Miami (Ohio) University in the 10th round.

He should be around the plate. Taylor, I believe, is the oldest of the pitchers who still are considered prospects.  When activated for the start, unless I miss added, someone will have to go down.  Badenhop?  Do you have a guess?
