The Miami Marlins continue to disappoint. In the month of May, they’re 7-18 with 11 of those losses coming in one-run games. They’ll face the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. The Rockies are 21-26 and have lost seven of their last ten games. The Marlins will head home after Wednesday’s afternoon game and get ready for a four-game weekend series against the San Francisco Giants.

Note: Tuesday’s game was cancelled due to weather and will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Wednesday.

What to watch for on...

Monday: How rocky will the road be for Pablo López?

  • López vs. Colorado in 2021: 8.0 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 8 K.
  • Pablo is coming off back-to-back rough starts against Washington and Tampa Bay in which he allowed more earned runs (7 ER) in those two starts than he did in his first seven starts (5 ER) of 2022. Coors Field is a notoriously tough park for pitchers and is one that López has never pitched in.

Tuesday: Edward Cabrera’s season debut.

  • Cabrera in 6 minor league starts in 2022: 4.23 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 12.7 K/9, 4.9 BB/9, 0.7 HR/9.
  • Beyond injuries, a big issue for the young right-hander is his control. In 2021, he walked 19 batters in 26 13 innings, giving him a staggering 6.5 walks per 9 innings. In the minor leagues this season, he walked 15 batters in 27 23 innings. Ely noted last week that Cabrera’s put together good starts recently and is making strides with his curveball. His repertoire also features a high-90s fastball, changeup, and slider.

Wednesday: End the series on a high note.

  • The Marlins have had trouble closing out series in May. They’ve lost the final game in seven of their nine series this month after dropping just two of six series finales in April.
  • After the 3-game series in Colorado, the fish will head home to host San Francisco for a 4-game weekend series.
