The Miami Marlins season is 30% over, what have we learned so far? Is it that certain starting pitchers may be done? It could be fun to take a look and have a better idea of where we're at. So, are you ready for the proverbial ride?

The season is 30% over, what did we learn about the Miami Marlins so far?

3. THREE STARTING PITCHERS ARE DONE

Trevor Rogers looked like a legit ace back in 2021, when he had a 2.64 ERA/2.55 FIP, in 25 games and 133.0 innings pitched. Sadly, he couldn't stay healthy or productive since. He has a 5.37 ERA/4.36 FIP in 38 games and 176.0 innings pitched since. His fastball velocity has been in decline and it certainly doesn't look like he'll be able to turn things around anymore.

Sixto Sanchez has finally returned to starting pitching after years of health issues, but has a 6.25 ERA/4.39 FIP, with just 4.8 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9 in 13 games and 31.2 innings pitched. With all of the starting pitchers already in the mix, it certainly looks like Sixto's time on the team is coming to an end.

We also learned that A.J. Puk is not going to be a starting pitcher again. He can't possibly get another chance after a horrible performance in the role this season. He's certainly not getting that chance anywhere else. Prior to this season, Rogers might have still had a chance to bounce back, Puk had a future as a starter, and Sixto was a question mark.
