Caleb Smith will start 2nd game for Marlins. Despaigne will start the 3rd— clarkspencer (@clarkspencer) March 27, 2018
Nothing has been announced, but the fact Trevor Richards, who isn't on the 40-man roster, was asked to be in Miami and not stay with Triple-A New Orleans could be a sign he will announced in the rotation later today @Marlins— Joe Frisaro (@JoeFrisaro) March 27, 2018
Dillon Peters will start today, and this may just be a tuneup for him to be in the rotation. He would be my guess @Marlins— Joe Frisaro (@JoeFrisaro) March 27, 2018
.@clarkspencer reporting Peter Mooney and Scott Van Slyke are not at @MarlinsPark today but Yadiel Rivera and @trevrchrds are, suggesting the former are out and the latter are in. If so, Richards could be making his MLB debut sometime next week. #JuntosMiami— Fish On The Farm (@marlinsminors) March 27, 2018
The @Marlins have assigned Brian Ellington to Triple A New Orleans. Right now, the Marlins farm system is currently ranked at 19 going into the 2018 season. The system was ranked 29 last season!!!!!! #Re2pectTheProcess #GoMarlins— Jorge Rodriguez (@MiamiJorge425) March 27, 2018
