    Marlins RP Chirs Narveson appears to be over blister issue

    Marlins pitcher Chirs Narveson (finger) tossed two innings out of the bullpen Tuesday against Philadelphia, allowing a run on two hits and a walk while striking out four. The appearance was Narveson's second since returning from a blister injury which cost him close to two weeks. Four of the six outs Narveson recorded Tuesday were via strikeout, but he also served up a solo homer to Darin Ruf, the seventh home run Narveson has allowed in just 25 1/3 innings with the big club this season. Look for the lefty to continue pitching out of the bullpen the rest of the way.

    Marlins' Chris Narveson impressive vs. Braves; leaves with blister

    Marlins starter Chris Narveson had a fine night on the mound against the Braves on Monday. Making his second start of the year, the left-hander allowed two hits over 5 1/3 scorless innings. He walked two and struck out three, en route to the 4-0 victory. Narveson, who did not pitch at all in 2014, is now 2-1 with a 5.23 ERA in eight appearances with the Marlins. His outing on Monday came to an end prematurely, as he developed a blister which caused him to exit the game with 90 pitches in the sixth inning. This start went much better for Narveson than his previous one. His last time out, he yielded seven runs on eight hits in just 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Pirates.
