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 president of baseball operations Michael Hill said SP Andrew Heaney will be given every opportunity this spring to prove that he deserves a spot in the starting rotation. "We're never shy about if a person earns it giving them the job. He's going to be given every opportunity to pitch with the rest of the candidates. If he's the best pitcher he'll be there," Hill said.

Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez will be shut down at around 170 innings this year. He's currently at 139 2/3 innings, so he could be shut down before the season's final month. Fernandez had never pitched above Class A before this season as a 21-year-old. The team could decide to shut SP Jacob Turner down, too, if he shows signs of fatigue. SPs Brad Hand and Brian Flynn could be called up in September to help fill the rotation. SP Sam Dyson is another candidate. It's doubtful SPs Andrew Heaney, Anthony DeSclafini or Justin Nicolino will be recalled from Double-A Jacksonville.
Fantasy Tip: Fernandez, at 8-5 with a 2.45 ERA and 149 strikeouts, is a heavy favorite for NL Rookie of the Year honors. He's been fantastic, but the time to utilize his talents is running out. Just be aware. Any of the young hurlers the Marlins may call up would only be useful for a start or two in deep NL-only leagues. If you're in the running for a fantasy championship, it's probably wise not to rely on them.
