Kyle Keller

Kyle Keller lasted for 2/3 of the eighth inning in Miami’s big loss to the Mets. He walked Quinn Brodey to start the inning, allowed Kevin Kaczmarski to double. Patrick Mazeika was safe on an RBI-fielders choice, then Sam Haggerty flew into a double play. Keller then walked Dario Pizzano and former Miami Marlins prospect Braxton Lee before getting lifted in favor of Ben Meyer. He was eventually responsible for four of the seven runs allowed in the inning.

Keller got another chance later in the week, taking over for Dan Straily with one out in the third inning against the Braves on Sunday. He then got Freddie Freeman to fly out, hit Tyler Flowers with a pitch, and walked Nick Markakis before getting Johan Camargo to fly out to end the frame.

Tyler Kinley

Tyler Kinley pitched in the fourth inning of the Marlins 7-5 loss to the Astros on the last day of February. He struck out a pair, walked one, allowed one hit, and was responsible for one unearned run.

On Sunday, Kinley gave up a solo homer to Adam Duvall, but pitched an otherwise good sixth inning in the Marlins loss to the Braves.

Jose Quijada

Jose Quijada pitched a perfect ninth against the Nats on Friday, striking two batters out. In his next appearance, in yesterday’s victory against the Mets, Quijada struck one batter out and allowed a hit, but no runs in a save situation.
