The Marlins optioned right-hander Arquimedes Caminero to Triple-A New Orleans following Tuesday night's 1-0 win against the Braves at Turner Field. Miami will announce a corresponding move Wednesday morning.
The Marlins decided to give Kevin Slowey a second start in place of the injured Jacob Turner (right shoulder sprain) rather than going with a four-man rotation through April. Off-days this Thursday and next Monday would have made it possible.
Aaron Harang, 35, leads the NL with an 0.70 ERA, has twice flirted with a no-hitter and has become the unlikely ace of the best starting rotation in the Majors. On Wednesday, the Braves pitcher will try to keep his momentum going against Marlins righty Nathan Eovaldi, who has recorded three quality starts in four outings this season.
Jose Fernandez matched a career-high 14 strikeouts in eight scoreless innings of three-hit ball in Miami's 1-0 win over Atlanta on Tuesday night at Turner Field. The victory snapped the Marlins' franchise-record streak of seven straight road losses to begin the season.
