MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – The Florida Marlins pitching rotation has taken its fair share of hits this season, most notably when Josh Johnson went down with an injury. So, the Marlins may look to the bullpen to find another starting pitcher.

The Marlins may make Clay Hensley the fifth pitcher in the rotation, according to the Palm Beach Post. But, the decision will be held off until after the All-Star break, which starts Monday.

Hensley last was a full-time starter for the San Diego Padres and was one game below .500 with a 3.71 ERA in 2006. Still, he’s better than 21-year-old Brad Hand, who has been manning the fifth spot in the rotation for the Fish.

Hand is 0-3 with a 3.79 ERA in 2011, but in his last game lasted just 4 innings. Marlins manager Jack McKeon said Hand would make his next scheduled start against the Astros on Thursday, according to the Post.
