After wrapping up a six-game road trip, Jose Urena and the Marlins open a three-game series at home against Jason Hammel and the Cubs on Monday. Urena, Miami's No. 2 prospect according to, will be making his second Major League start. The right-hander took a loss at Pittsburgh last Tuesday, giving up five runs on 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings.

David Phelps pitched well on Sunday afternoon but Miami fell to the Mets 4-3.

Manager Dan Jennings opted to have Phelps bat eighth on Sunday afternoon against the Mets. Jennings was working with a short bench and the lineup produced nine hits.

Steve Cishek allowed the go-ahead run in the seventh against the Mets on Sunday. The struggles continue.

Sunday was only the fourth game in Marlins history during which the pitcher did not bat ninth.
