Badenhop to start Wednesday

The Marlins have decided on who to start on Wednesday at Philadelphia.

Burke Badenhop will make his first start of the season. The right-hander has thrown out of the bullpen in long relief since he was called up from Triple-A New Orleans.

A sinkerball pitcher, the Marlins are hoping he can get his share of groundball outs in hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park.

How long Badenhop can go is up in the air. He did make two starts at Triple-A, but those came in early April.

His longest outing with the Marlins has been 3 2/3 innings and 53 pitches, last Wednesday against Arizona.

Oh man… I’m not too excited about having the hopper start a game again.

Who else would you like to see start?
John Koronka, Hayden Penn, Graham Taylor? Sinkbeil has been lit up in the minors this year so he doesn’t seem ready for the big-leaues just yet. What are the other options?
I am actually glad we get to see the Hopper be given a chance to start. He has pitched decent enough out of the ‘pen to earn it
