Dan Haren pitched well in his first start as a Marlin, tossing six innings against the Rays while allowing four hits and one run to complement a pair of strikeouts. He did not issue a walk, and appeared to have command of his offspeed pitches.

Stults pitched five innings in his first start of the 2015 season against the Mets, allowing three runs while walking one and striking out three.
