The Marlins rotation this year has been bad, 29th out of 30 bad. They lack a high end guy that can shut down opposing offenses and stop a losing streak and they also lack depth in their rotation to keep their bullpen fresh.
Adam Conley is an example of a lack of depth for the Marlins, he’s made four starts, averaging less than 5 innings per outing and has a 6.86 ERA.
But much of his troubles came in his last start, in which he got chased in his last outing after only 1.2 innings after giving up 9 earned runs! He gave up 3 walks and 5 hits and all of his baserunners scored.
Tampa Bay Rays
Blake Snell on the surface is off to a good start for the Rays this season, especially as a back of the rotation starter on one of the worst starting pitching staffs in baseball.
He made 5 starts in April and posted a respectable 3.42 ERA, but his FIP is a more concerning 5.16. Possibly aiding his sky high FIP is an equally sky high walk rate, Snell is putting an average of 6 batters on base via free pass per 9 innings.
He also doesn’t have the strikeout rate to combat his walk rate, nor the strand rate. Yet his BABIP against is well below average at .242; so it’s only a matter of time before those grounders bleed into the outfield and bloopers find grass instead of gloves.
When they do, expect the runs to follow.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
Before Conley’s last performance, his ERA was much more respectable. Hard to tell if the 9 runs in less than two innings was an aberration or a sign of things to come, or possibly injury.

This number seems incredibly low given the struggles and/or impending struggles of these starting pitchers, the offenses may be anemic but take the over.
