Jarred Cosart will make a rehab start on Tuesday and the Marlins are confident he will be able to rejoin the rotation before the end of the season.

After dropping two of three to the Nationals, the Marlins open a series with the Braves at Turner Field.

Erik Cordier wants to earn a full time job with the Marlins next season.
