Probable Starting Pitchers

Making the start for the Chicago Cubs on Friday afternoon against the Miami Marlins at Wrigley Field is starting pitcher Justin Steele. In a scheduling quirk, Steele's last start was against the Marlins last weekend in Miami. Steele allowed 3 runs (2 earned) in his start against the Marlins last weekend while striking out 3 in 6 innings of work. On the season, Steele has been excellent as he has posted a 1.49 ERA through his first 6 starts this season.

Edward Cabrera will be making the start for the Marlins and like Steele, he will be facing the same team for his second straight start. Cabrera has the ability to strikeout hitters at a high frequency but also struggles with command. That was the case in his start against the Cubs last weekend as he struck out 12 but also walked 5.
