Notes: Pablo López, who I have ranked as the third-strongest Marlins All-Star candidate, was lined up for this start. However, he’s been pushed back until Tuesday. Nothing to worry about—just part of the effort to keep him fresh throughout the season...Every Marlins reliever with the exception of Yimi García got a rest on Sunday. He’s the only guy who’s unlikely to be available tonight (he also pitched on Saturday).
