Philadelphia will send Right-hander Jerad Eickhoff (1-7, 4.63 ERA), as their six-game road trip continues with a three-game series in Miami on Monday at Marlins Park. This will be Eickhoff’s second start since coming back from the disabled list with a strained upper back. He holds a 2-3 with a 3.30 ERA record in his five career starts against the Marlins.
Eickhoff was up against the Padres on his return to the Phillies rotation on July 9. The right-hander made his best spell of five scoreless innings striking out eight, ending his first half on high note.
Tom Koehler (1-4, 8.00 ERA) is set to make his third start after being called back up to the Majors from the Triple-A New Orleans in the series opener against the Phillies on Monday in Miami.
Since being promoted to the big leagues, Koehler posted limped performances. He lost both of his starts, giving up 10 runs over 6 2/3 innings. In his career Koehler holds a 3.43 ERA over 16 starts against the Phillies.
