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.
