Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez has had about as good a rookie campaign as possible in 2013 and will make his final start in 2013 Wednesday night.
With Tuesday night’s loss to the Atlanta Braves, the Miami Marlins hit the 90 loss mark for the third consecutive season under the watchful eye of owner Jeffrey Loria.
After unexpectedly sweeping the New York Mets last weekend, Tropical Storm Andrea may get the better of both teams before a scheduled matchup Friday night.
The Miami Marlins had hoped to keep hard-throwing right-handed pitcher Jose Fernandez in the minor leagues for a little more work. But a wild chain of events and roster transactions on Sunday led the Fish to keep the rookie pitcher on the team’s major league roster.
When the Miami Marlins take the field Wednesday night for opening day against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Fish will send their pitching ace, Josh Johnson to the mound for the first time in almost a year.
