The subject of trade rumors, Nolasco is expected to be moved by the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline. He comes off a loss to the Padres, giving up five earned runs and six total in five innings.
Coming off two of his worst starts of the season, Minor allowed three runs on seven hits in his first three innings against the Royals on Wednesday, but he allowed just two more hits over his final three innings.

Jacob Turner, RHP (2-0, 1.76 ERA)vs Julio Teheran, RHP (6-4, 3.12 ERA)
Turner comes off his first career complete game. It also was the first time a Miami starter went the distance this year. The 22-year-old was in command in beating the Padres, striking out seven on 111 pitches.
Teheran's slider has become a reliable weapon as this season has progressed. He has allowed fewer than three runs in nine of his past 12 starts. He has a 1.34 ERA in his past six home starts.
