Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand, who is out of minor league options and is fighting for a roster spot as a starter or reliever, has a 0.75 ERA and has struck out 15 hitters in 12 innings this spring. Hand is firmly competing for a roster spot with SPs Tom Koehler and Kevin Slowey. "My changeup has been working really well this spring," Hand said. "That's been the biggest part of where I've struggled, getting behind hitters, walking guys. That's one of the big things I've been working on, getting ahead and staying ahead."

Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler is expected to be a lock to make the starting rotation out of camp.
Fantasy Tip: Koehler is a reliever turned starter that produced some decent games last season in his rookie year. He profiles as a very average pitcher on a poor team, however. Look elsewhere.

Miami Marlins SP Jacob Turner is all but guaranteed a starting rotation spot this year. President of baseball operations Michael Hill mentions SPs Brad Hand, Brian Flynn and Tom Koehler as candidates to compete for the fifth and final rotation spot. SPs Andrew Heaney, Justin Nicolino, Adam Conley and Anthony DeSclafini will receive spring innings to prove themselves, but they'll likely start in the minors.

Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler could temporarily be removed from the rotation, as he is the likely candidate to slip out of the rotation when SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) returns from the 15-day disabled list. That's assuming the team has not traded SP Ricky Nolasco by the time Alvarez is ready.
Fantasy Tip: Koehler enters play Wednesday against Minnesota with a 1-5 record and 4.65 ERA on the season, so it is unlikely fantasy owners outside of the deepest NL-only leagues would notice if Koehler is bumped.
