Florida Marlins(10-12) _New York Mets (12-10)
Alvarez: Alvarez was perfect for five innings in his last start. He ended up throwing a two-hit shutout against the Mariners. The right-hander needed 90 pitches to become Miami's first starter to go the distance this season.
Wheeler: Wheeler entered this season hoping to improve his control and efficiency, but he has struggled in both areas through two starts. Still, the righty has kept his team in the game each time he has pitched, with three quality starts and one near-miss.
Slowey: Slowey makes his second start in place of the injured Jacob Turner. Slowey pitched seven scoreless innings in relief and earned the victory in the Marlins' 2-1 win against the Mets in 19 innings on June 8, 2013.
Mejia: In his last outing against the Cards, Mejia extended his career-long scoreless-innings streak to 13 2/3. Much of that run has come despite a blister on Mejia's right middle finger, which forced him to exit a start in Arizona earlier this month.
Koehler: Koehler nearly took a hard-luck loss in his most recent start, surrendering two runs in 6 1/3 innings vs. the Braves. He has recorded four quality starts, and his 2.13 ERA is second to Jose Fernandez among Miami starters.
Gee: Though Gee struggled a bit early this season, he has kept the Mets in every game he has pitched. Over his past two starts, he has fared even better, giving up a total of two runs. Gee was 1-0 with a 2.92 ERA in two starts against Miami last year.
