Coming off a series win against N.L. East rival the New York Mets, the Fish are back in Miami for a three game series against the Cubs. Rookie Jose Urena will face Jason Hammel on the mound Monday night.

Last Week Jose Urena was called up from AAA New Orleans to fill in for Henderson Alvarez and Mat Latos who are on the disabled list. Urena struggled in his first career start last Wednesday against the Pirates. He gave up five earned runs over only 4.2 innings pitched.

Jason Hammel was originally set to start for the Cubs on Sunday, but a rain out on Saturday gave him an extra day of rest. Hammel has a record of three and two this season. In his last start Hammel pitched gave up four earned runs over seven innings of work.
