Marlins at Dodgers, 7:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA
With the calamitous loss of Jose Fernandez, possibly for as long as a year, the Marlins have had to scramble to find a pitcher to take his spot in the rotation. It will be filled by Anthony DeSclafani, who will be making his MLB debut. The right-hander is 24 years old and is touted as the sixth-best prospect in the Marlins’ organization. Here’s what he’s done at AA this season:
The Dodgers will send out Paul Maholm, who is 1-3 with a 4.71 ERA.
