It didn't take long for the Marlins to detect what Braves pitchers were trying to do on Friday night at SunTrust Park. It's what so many other clubs have done all year -- throw a high number of sliders, curveballs and off-speed pitches.
Since allowing one run in 5 1/3 innings against the Rockies on April 28, Wei-Yin Chen has a 10.32 ERA in his last three starts. Chen aims to get on track on Sunday in the series finale against the Braves at SunTrust Park. Julio Teheran goes for Atlanta in the 1:35 p.m. ET contest.
Dan Straily went a season-high seven innings as three Marlins pitchers combined for a four-hitter of the first-place Braves. J.T. Realmuto and Starlin Castro knocked consecutive RBI extra-base hits in the sixth off Matt Wisler, who made a spot start for Atlanta.
The Marlins are using their surplus of organizational starting pitchers to help patch up their bullpen. On Friday, the club recalled Adam Conley and Dillon Peters from Triple-A New Orleans.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Friday.
The Marlins designated veteran reliever Junichi Tazawa for assignment after their 7-0 loss to the Dodgers at Marlins Park, and also optioned right-hander Tyler Cloyd to Triple-A New Orleans.

Caleb Smith's impressive string of starts came to a halt on Thursday afternoon as Smith allowed four runs in three innings in the Marlins' 7-0 loss to the Dodgers at Marlins Park.
For the first time in years, the Marlins have some quality pitching depth, and they are closely monitoring their innings.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Thursday.
The National League East has been one of the most competitive divisions in baseball with four teams posting winning records through roughly one quarter of the season. MLB.com this week looks back and ahead at the season's quarter point.
J.T. Realmuto has hit safely in all 21 career games he's faced the Dodgers. The 27-year-old catcher's lone hit on Wednesday night proved to be the difference, as he hit a go-ahead solo home run in the sixth inning. Justin Bour also went deep for the Marlins, who secured the series win. Yasmani Grandal homered for the Dodgers, who have lost six straight and nine of their last 10.
From the day he was introduced as the Marlins' chief executive officer, Derek Jeter has stressed the importance of patience as the franchise goes through the process of building a championship-caliber team. Still, there are times even Jeter admits to getting frustrated by some of the growing pains on the field.
She threw a rough first pitch, then got engaged
Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto had three hits, including a two-out RBI double, in a series-opening win over the Dodgers, who got late home runs from Yasiel Puig and Cody Bellinger. Martin Prado scored an early run on a throwing error and the Miami third baseman made a stellar diving catch on a bunt attempt -- diving across the first-base line. Justin Turner singled and started an odd double play in his season debut for Los Angeles.
On Wednesday morning, the Marlins announced the hiring of Elisa Padilla as senior vice president of marketing and community relations, Travis Apple as vice president of ticket sales and service and Michael Shaw as vice president and head of customer engagement.
Marlins third baseman Martin Prado sacrificed his body in the fifth inning on Tuesday night against the Dodgers and took a sacrifice bunt away from Alex Wood at Marlins Park.
It was a back to school day for several Marlins players and manager Don Mattingly on Tuesday morning. May is recognized as Education Month at Marlins Park, and the organization is in the midst of its Think Tank Week. A part of the initiative, Marlins players and staff have been stopping by 15 participating elementary schools in Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Tuesday.
Do you see J.T. Realmuto as a long-term fixture on this team or as a non-waiver Trade Deadline or offseason trade possibility? I would love to see him anchor this team long term.
Jose Urena is pitching at a high level with little to show for it. Over his last four starts, the 26-year-old right-hander has a 2.84 ERA, but he has yet to post a win. It was more of the same on Sunday in the Marlins' 4-3 loss to the Braves at Marlins Park.
Mother's Day has always been a day of celebration, and around Major League Baseball on Sunday, it also is a time to raise awareness for the battle against breast cancer.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Sunday.
A patient, pesky approach by the Braves once again chipped away at the Marlins' bullpen late. In the eighth inning, the Braves forced a combined 52 pitches from Drew Steckenrider and Junichi Tazawa. The end result was Tyler Flowers and Johan Camargo each drawing bases-loaded walks that brought home the decisive runs in the Marlins' 10-5 loss to the Braves on Saturday night at Marlins Park.
Stormtroopers stopped by broadcast booth
When the time comes for Miami to pass the torch to a new closer, Brad Ziegler feels three relievers currently on the roster are capable of reaching 100 or more saves in their career.
J.T. Realmuto homered among his 3 hits and Starlin Castro homered and had 2 RBIs to beat the Braves at Marlins Park, ending the Marlins' 4-game losing streak. Ozzie Albies hit his 12th homer for Atlanta, but Brandon McCarthy (5 IP, 6 ER) struggled. Dan Straily got the win for Miami.
The Marlins' pitching prospects are moving up the ranks in their Minor League system. At Triple-A New Orleans, there are currently six starters who have either already pitched in the big leagues or are getting close. Double-A Jacksonville on Thursday added another starter, when Merandy Gonzalez was optioned back to the Minor Leagues to make room for 23-year-old right-hander Elieser Hernandez.
Shaq throws out ceremonial first pitch
In his brief big league career, Drew Steckenrider has been the model of consistency. Against the Braves, Steckenrider saw how quickly things can turn. The steady right-hander was tagged for six runs on four hits, with two walks (one intentional) in a 9-2 loss to the Braves at Marlins Park.
The first four home runs Lewis Brinson has hit this season have come on the road and in National League Central ballparks. In the ninth inning on Thursday, Brinson finally was able to circle the bases at home. His ninth-inning home run was one of the few offensive highlights for the Marlins in a 9-2 loss to the Braves at Marlins Park.
Before facing the Braves at 7:10 p.m. ET at Marlins Park, the club announced right-hander Elieser Hernandez was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list, and rookie right-hander Merandy Gonzalez was optioned to Double-A Jacksonville.
