Welcome back, Nathan Eovaldi.

The Miami Marlins welcome back another injury return as Eovaldi takes the hill for the first time in 2013 for Miami versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. The D'backs will look to come back from a ninth-inning loss caused by Heath Bell, while the Marlins would love any opportunity to get back some more at Bell.

I don't like Heath Bell.

Nathan Eovaldi makes his return to the majors in an attempt to bolster this roster's halfway decent pitching staff. Randall Delgado will look to show why he used to be a former top prospect, though his first two D'backs innings did not go so well this year.

Yet another day, yet another absence by Justin Ruggiano. Pierre over Ruggiano may be the worst move the club has made this season.
