Welcome to another Miami Marlins Round Table Discussion. On today’s agenda, we’ll be previewing the season for the Miami Marlins, which is set begin today on Opening Day 2015. This is part 2 of a 3 part segment. 

1. Who will be the Marlins #2 starter by the end of the season?

Ehsan Kassim: Henderson Alvarez. I’m still unsure of how Mat Latos will pitch in 2015 with his injury woes in 2014 and his loss of velocity. No one else in the rotation stands out and Alvarez pitched really well last season. He’ll be the number 2 to Jose Fernandez

More from Marlins News

Travis Honeycutt: Mat Latos. Last year was the first time he has been hurt for extended time in his career. Every prior year he was a workhorse, a top of the rotation guy. I think we see the latter from Latos in his lone year with the Marlins.

Daniel Zylberkan: Henderson Alvarez – he’s not a strikeout pitcher but he gives up bad contact and is a great groundball pitcher. He can definitely be the kind of workhorse the Marlins need in the rotation

Miller Lepree: Mat Latos, he’s proven, and is ready to prove that he can recover from his injury-plagued 2014.

David Polakoff: Henderson Alvarez will slot back in the #2 slot after Fernandez returns

Dillon Murrell: The Marlins number two will be Henderson Alvarez. I think he’s just scratching the surface of his upside and he has real star potential. I think he takes a big step forward this season.

Michael Sonbeek: Henderson Alvarez. I think he can continue his success of last season so he slots down to number two when Jose reclaims number 1.
