The Miami Marlins have one of the last few opportunities to feature Jose Fernandez this season. The Fish return to Miami and will face the Washington Nationals in a three-game series, and Fernandez will be the first to face off against the Nats. The pleasure of facing him in a pitching duel will go to Dan Haren.

Dan Haren has been better since the second half. Jose Fernandez has been unhittable since the second half. This should be a fun night.

The Marlins will give Christian Yelich his first shot at the center field position, with Chris Coghlan taking over a familiar spot in left field. This should be a good test for the rookie, who has the athleticism, if not the arm strength, to be highly successful in center.
- What a shame. I will get a chance to listen to this one on the radio, but because I am in the Washington area, I actually won't be able to watch the game, meaning I'll sadly miss visualizing a Fernandez start.
Bold Prediction: Marlins def. Nationals 4-2
