Offday and the rotation

Because the Marlins are off on Monday, their starting pitchers will get an extra day of rest between starts.

So Josh Johnson, who started on Sunday at Toronto, is slated to next pitch on Saturday against the Yankees at Land Shark Stadium. Normally, he would have been in line to go on Friday in the series opener with New York.

Sean West will pitch the Friday game with the New York.

The Marlins also are off on June 22, which creates an extra day for Chris Volstad, Andrew Miller and Ricky Nolasco. Those three will start, respectively, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at Boston.

So with the next two Mondays off, every stater except Volstad will make two consecutive starts with an extra day’s rest. Isn’t it time to start pitching Johnson and Volstad every fifth day, instead of every fifth game?
