Name: Steve Cishek
May stats: 0-1, 2 saves, 1 hold, 3.48 ERA, 4 ER, 7 H, 7 BB, 8 SO, 10 1/3 IP
Analysis: Cishek hasn't had a save since May 10, but it seems as though he's gotten more comfortable as the season progressed. In his last 11 appearances, Cishek did not allow a run in nine of them.
Name: Derek Dietrich
May stats: .230 BA (17-74), .296 OBP, .419 SLG, 3 HR, 8 RBI
Analysis: Despite what the numbers say, Dietrich has been impressive since promoted to the majors May 8. Dietrich has hit third in the batting order since his fourth career start, provided some pop in a lineup in desperate need of it, and has reached base in 18 of his 20 career games, including in each of his first 14 games. And did we mention he's a rookie?
Name: Mike Dunn
May stats: 0-1, 1 save, 2 holds, 1 blown save, 4.76 ERA, 6 ER, 12 H, 8 BB, 12 SO, 11 1/3 IP
Analysis: Up until his last three appearances, Dunn was downright dominant as he had been untouched in 22 of his first 25 games. Dunn was so good, Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal said teams have asked the Marlins about Dunn's availability in a trade. Meanwhile, ESPN.com's Buster Olney thinks the Atlanta Braves could be one of Dunn's landing spots. But in his last three appearances, Dunn has yielded five earned runs in two innings.
Name: Brad Hand
May stats: 0-0, 0.00 ERA, 0 ER, 0 H, 2 BB, 3 SO, 1 2/3 IP
Analysis: Hand appeared in only one game, but he was wildly effective before he was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans.
Name: Tom Koehler
May stats: 0-3, 4.03 ERA, 13 ER, 26 H, 8 BB, 16 SO, 29 IP
Analysis: Koehler replaced LeBlanc in the rotation, and while he has been winless in four starts, he has been just as effective regardless of the role. As a starter, Koehler has a 3.24 ERA in 25 innings while as a reliever, he has a 3.18 ERA in 11 1/3 innings.
Name: Ed Lucas
May stats: .250 BA (1-4), .250 OBP, .250 SLG
Analysis: A 10-year minor leaguer, Lucas finally got the call to the majors Wednesday. In his first career start, Lucas had a RBI single and scored a run.
Name: Ricky Nolasco
May stats: 1-4, 3.57 ERA, 16 ER, 36 H, 9 BB, 40 SO, 40 1/3 IP
Analysis: For what it's worth, Nolasco has done pretty much all he can do to fulfill his role as the de facto ace of the staff. In six May starts, he allowed one run or less in three of them. Unfortunately, he's had just one win to show for it as the offense scored just six runs during his outings.
Name: Juan Pierre
May stats: .239 BA (17-71), .316 OBP, .310 SLG, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 5 SB
Analysis: Not a great month for Pierre, but it might have been memorable. For starters, Pierre hit his 18th career home run, in what is now 7,383 at-bats, against Cincinnati on May 16. He let out a whoop when his homer barely cleared the fence just inside the right field foul pole. Two weeks earlier, Pierre swiped his 600th career stolen base, which made him the eighth player since 1920 to have 1,000 runs, 2,000 hits and 600 steals.
"It feels good to be mentioned with guys like that," Pierre told the Associated Press. "But I really don't feel like I should be mentioned with those guys. It's nice to have played all this time and accomplished something."
Name: Chad Qualls
May stats: 0-0, 1 hold, 3.24 ERA, 3 R, 7 H, 1 BB, 5 SO, 8 1/3 IP
Analysis: No better than fourth in the Marlins' bullpen pecking order, Qualls has been quietly effective as he's currently thrown six consecutive scoreless appearances.
Name: Alex Sanabia
May stats: 1-4, 4.91 ERA, 17 R, 14 ER, 37 H, 9 BB, 16 SO, 25 2/3 IP
Analysis: Who says cheating doesn't pay?
Sanabia was dreadful this month, but in his line victory, he was caught illegally spitting a baseball. Sanabia said he didn't know it was illegal and he did it to get a better grip on the ball.
"I didn't know. I was in my zone and just grooving. It's something you live and learn from. I didn't mean anything bad by it or I didn't mean to do anything more," Sanabia told the AP. "It's something that showed up that way and people all of a sudden just create their own perception of."
Marlins manager Mike Redmond said they were not contacted by Major League Baseball about the incident, a game in which Sanabia allowed one run on seven hits in 6 1/3 innings.
A week later, Sanabia was placed on the 15-day DL with a right groin injury.
Name: Donovan Solano
May stats: .385 BA (5-13), .385 OBP, .615 SLG, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 15-day DL
Analysis: After a slow start to the season, Solano heated up, which included his first home run of the season in the last game he played before he headed to the disabled list May 7 with a left intercostal strain.
Name: Ryan Webb
May stats: 0-2, 1 hold, 1 blown save, 3.75 ERA, 5 ER, 12 H, 5 BB, 10 SO, 12 IP
Analysis: Like Dunn, Webb was unhittable for much of May. From April 20 to May 20, Webb threw 17 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings spanning 13 appearances, and during that stretch, Webb had faced 32 batters without allowing a base hit. Unfortunately, that string of dominance ended as Webb has allowed at least a run in each of his last four appearances.
