Add it all up, and the Marlins aren't entirely sure how their rotation will shape up this coming week. Or they're sure, and they're not telling anyone.
Here's the only thing that's certain: Tom Koehler will start Tuesday at Texas. Beyond that, questions marks.
Throw in the fact that it's now possible for the Marlins to safely call up Heaney from Triple A New Orleans without risking Super 2 status, and it muddles the picture even further.
Heaney went six innings Saturday for the Zephyrs, allowing a run on five hits over six innings. He struck out nine while walking one. He has now made four starts for New Orleans, going 3-0 with a 2.74 ERA. Overall this season, he is 7-2 with a 2.47 ERA while striking out 79 in 76 2/3 innings
If the Marlins decide to promote Heaney now, he could start either Friday or Saturday after the Marlins return home from their road trip. If they decide to give him another start at Triple A, he would likely come up in the Mets series at home.
SALTY’S STATUSHenderson Alvarez's
Alvarez's streak is the third-longest by a Marlins pitcher. Luis Aquino went 26 1/3 scoreless innings during the 1994 season, and Javier Vazquez went 29 in a row without allowing a run in 2011.
