The Process Versus Marlins Hitters and Pitchers

Anibal Sanchez

After years of tantalizing potential overshadowed by injuries, Sanchez is now a perpetual no-hitter threat. Sanchez already has one complete game this season and is fanning more than a batter per inning pitched. He has a low-90s fastball, a slider, a change, and even a curveball and doesn’t seem to mind who faces him—impressive, considering struggles against left-handers earlier in his career.

Javier Vazquez

Tommy recently covered Vazquez for FanGraphs. The short version: He isn’t doing so hot and may not recover.

Josh Johnson

The last time the Rays encountered Johnson, he went eight-strong, striking out nine, walking none, allowing one home run, and watching as the Marlins won 8-to-2. Johnson is an absolute monster with a fastball averaging around 94 miles per hour and a wipeout slider to boot. The Rays are probably going to struggle with Johnson unless his control is off, but that goes for just about every team in the majors.
