The Miami Marlins will be looking to capitalize on its wealth of young pitching again Tuesday night when right-hander Nathan Eovaldi takes the mound in the second-game of a four-game series against the Colorado Rockies at Marlins Park.
One of the key pitchers the Miami Marlins hoped would be in a strong and young rotation will instead start the season out in Triple-A ball.
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.
Late Wednesday night, the Miami Marlins acquired mercurial right-handed pitcher Carlos Zambrano from the Chicago Cubs. It was a move that will either turn out to be genius or the work of a madman.
