The Former Marlin vs the Future Former Marlin

Josh Johnson was a young phenom on Joe Girardi's 2006 Marlins.

When he needed TJ surgery, many pundits pinned that on Joe G.

Now in his 4th big league season, Johnson is fulfilling all the expectations. He spent some time as a reliever, but is back the rotation to stay sporting a 1.07 WHIP thanks to great command (3.61 K/BB).

It took 4 years.

Toeing the rubber for the Yanks will be former Marlin AJ Burnett. He's allowed less than a hit per inning on the season, but he's walked nearly 5 batters/9IP.

He needs to know where it's going for the Yanks to get anywhere.
