Brad Hand, now the lone lefty in the Marlins' rotation, will look to prove that he deserves to remain in the rotation and gets the start for the Marlins. Hand went five innings and allowed three runs while walking one and striking out five in his last outing against the Phillies.
Vidal Nuno, a former Yankee, will make his Diamondbacks debut against Miami. In five innings against the Rays in his last start, Nuno gave up four runs (three earned) while walking two and striking out five.
