- P Tyler Beede (13.50 ERA, 7.64 FIP, 23.3 K%, 36.0 Hard Hit% in 6.2 IP)
Notes: Not much data on Tyler Beede at the major league level. The 26-year-old right-hander will be making only his fourth career start. Control figures to be an issue based on what he’s shown at Triple-A Sacramento. Even during the hot stretch earlier this season that earned him a call-up, Beede walked 9.9% of all batters faced and plunked four batters in just 34 2⁄3 innings pitched.

Their batters have combined for a .275/.329/.440 slash line, producing an average of 5.3 runs per game...Jorge Alfaro has had a huge role in that. He’s understandably getting a day off after catching four consecutive complete games over the past four days...He made it adventurous on Wednesday, but Sergio Romo improved to 11-for-11 in save opportunities this season...About one-third of the way through the regular season, I shared my Marlins thoughts on variety of topics as a guest on the Locked On MLB podcast.
