Series Preview: 6/26-6/28 Florida Marlins @ Tampa Bay Rays

6/26: Josh Johnson vs. James Shields (7:38 FSF)

6/27: Chris Volstad vs. Jeff Niemann? (7:08 FSF)

6/28: Andrew Miller vs. David Price? (1:38 SS)

Johnson is quite good. In fact, he's on the verge of recording 3 WAR already this season. The next closest Marlins pitcher is Andrew Miller at 1.2 WAR, whom we face as well.

Volstad is a grounder inducer with a below average strand rate. Don't mind regressing on us please. He mostly throws a heavy fastball, curve, and change.

By now, most know about Miller. He's been the victim of some very good homerun/fly ball luck this season. Don't expect him to continue at that pace.
