Marlins Analysis: They are starting A.J. Puk

To start the series, A.J. Puk will make his 4th start of the year. Puk spent the previous season as a bullpen pitcher, but the Marlins are now testing his effectiveness as a starter. In his debut, the left-hander pitched poorly, giving up 4 runs. Despite taking the loss, he pitched well his previous outing, limiting the Yankees to just two runs (one earned) in 4.2 innings. Over the course of the season, Puk has given up 10 runs (seven earned) in 10.2 innings. In his brief career against the Cubs, the veteran has given up three runs (two earned). Miami completed a 2-4 homestand before heading out on the road. The Marlins are looking for their season’s first series victory.


Cubs Analysis: They’ve only lost 1 game of their last 5

For a Cubs squad that might need some assistance in their rotation after beginning the season quite convincingly at the plate, Jameson Taillon is set to make his first start of the year after beginning it on the injured list. With an ERA of 2.00 heading into this game, the right-hander, who has been highly sought after by the Cubs, has the opportunity to make an impression. Despite having a 2-3 record at the end of the season, Taillon averaged 5.2 innings per start, which improved the bullpen’s effectiveness and saved a ton of arms for later in the game, very important for this squad. After re-signing in the winter, Cody Bellinger is back with the Cubs and has made a decent impression thus far. Stay tuned for more articles like this with the best MLB analysis.
