Felipe Paulino, RHP (0-0 1.69 ERA)
vs.For the first time since 2012, Paulino pitched in a big league game during Wednesday's win vs. the Twins, throwing 109 pitches over 5 1/3 and minimizing Minnesota's damage by fanning six. Paulino is 0-1 with a 7.36 ERA over nine games at Coors Field.
Jordan Lyles, RHP (1-0 7.20 ERA)
Lyles, called up when Tyler Chatwood suffered a left hamstring injury, struck out five in five innings while beating the Marlins. He yielded a hit batsman, a walk and a homer in the sixth, and he'll need to prevent such lapses.

Jose Quintana, LHP (0-0 3.00 ERA)
vs.It only seems fitting that Quintana should start the season with a no-decision, considering he had 17 of them in '13 and has 28 since '12. He once again pitched well enough to win by allowing two earned runs on five hits over six while fanning eight.
Franklin Morales, LHP (0-0 5.06 ERA)
Morales allowed three runs on eight hits 5 1/3 innings, striking out four with two walks against the Marlins in his season debut on Thursday in Miami. He was in line for a win before Matt Belisle blew the save with four runs allowed in the ninth.

Erik Johnson, RHP (0-1 13.50 ERA)
vs.The rookie struggled throwing his fastball, slider and changeup for strikes, in 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Royals. Johnson yielded seven runs on 10 hits, walked three and struck out two. This will be his first Interleague start and first at-bat.
Juan Nicasio, RHP (1-0 1.29 ERA)
Nicasio unveiled his split-finger pitch, which he has added to his fastball and slider, and he shut down the D-backs for seven innings on Friday afternoon. Nicasio finished with six strikeouts, and the split forced several grounders.
