Taylor lined up for Sunday
Officially, the Marlins will announce their Sunday starter after Saturday’s game.
Indications for several days have been that it will be Graham Taylor, the left-hander from Double-A Jacksonville.
The latest clear indicator is the fact Taylor was scheduled to start for Jacksonville on Saturday night at Montgomery. Now, Jacksonville is starting Jarrett Santos.
A left-hander, Taylor will fill Andrew Miller’s rotation spot. Miller is on the DL with a strained right oblique. If he performs, Taylor could make a couple of starts.
Going with Taylor against the Phillies makes sense since Philadelphia is loaded with left-handed hitters.
