What to watch for on...
Monday: Erick Fedde vs. Miami.
- Fedde career vs. Marlins: 1.10 ERA and 0.949 WHIP in 32.2 IP.
- Fedde kept the Marlins quiet last week, allowing just three hits over five innings. The only run came from a Lewin Díaz solo home run. Fedde has performed well against the Marlins over his career, and the Fish will look to disrupt the trend on Monday night.
Tuesday: Round 2 vs. Josh Rogers.
- Rogers vs. Miami last week: 5.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K.
- The one hit Rogers gave up was to his pitching opponent Trevor Rogers, who singled to center in his only at-bat of the game. The rookie lefthander will face the Fish in back-to-back starts with both sides looking to make the necessary adjustments.
Wednesday: Keep an eye on the young guys.
- In addition to Bryan De La Cruz, Jesús Sánchez, and Lewin Díaz, the Marlins recently called up catchers Payton Henry and Nick Fortes.
- Henry made his big league debut Friday night, doubling off the centerfield wall for his first hit. Fortes debuted Saturday night, going 2-for-3 with a single and home run. De La Cruz and Sánchez have been hot lately, and Díaz walked it off in extras with a two-run home run Sunday afternoon.
