ATLANTA: HITTING: The Braves were 27th in the majors in steals last year, but that number should rise with a full season of speedster OF MICHAEL BOURN, who was acquired from Houston last July. OFs MARTIN PRADO and JASON HEYWARD comprise the corner outfield spots, and are both are looking to bounce back after disappointing, injury-riddled 2011 campaigns. 2B DAN UGGLA smacked a career-best 36 HR in his first year with Atlanta, his fifth straight 30-homer season. Steady veterans C BRIAN McCANN and 3B CHIPPER JONES comprise a solid middle of the lineup. McCann has four straight 20-HR, 70-RBI seasons, while Jones, who turns 40 in April, has a career .402 on-base percentage. 1B FREDDIE FREEMAN was the N.L.'s best offensive rookie last year, batting .282 with 21 HR and 76 RBI. The starting shortstop will be one of two highly-touted, 22-year-old prospects, TYLER PASTORNICKY or ANDRELTON SIMMONS.
STARTING PITCHING: Even with significant injuries to three starters, the Braves rotation still ranked ninth in the majors in ERA (3.73), thanks to TIM HUDSON posting a 3.22 ERA in 215 innings. The right-hander was lights-out at Turner Field again, going 10-4 with a 2.31 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. But he'll be out at least a month because of back problems. JAIR JURRJENS was outstanding through the end of July (12-3, 2.38 ERA), but a knee strain bothered him in August and shut him down for September. Although many teams inquired about Jurrjens in the offseason, it doesn't look like the Braves want to deal him just yet. TOMMY HANSON is another young star (25) that had to be shut down in early August due to a partially torn rotator cuff. His ERA was a career-worst 3.60, but he notched a career-best 9.8 K/9 rate. BRANDON BEACHY, also 25, posted a whopping 10.7 K/9 ratio with a respectable ERA (3.68) and WHIP (1.21). Atlanta is loaded with young pitchers, but expect MIKE MINOR (5-3, 4.14 ERA) and RANDALL DELGADO to start in the majors, with JULIO TEHERAN, who has the most upside of the trio, to begin 2012 in Triple-A.
RELIEF PITCHING: CRAIG KIMBREL exceeded all expectations last year, establishing himself as one of the best closers in the game. He struck out an eye-popping 14.8 batters per nine (127 K in 77 IP), and converted 46-of-54 (85%) save chances. Even though Kimbrel's job as a closer is probably locked down for the next decade, the Braves have two other great relievers, both lefties. JONNY VENTERS posted a 1.84 WHIP and .176 opponents' BA in 88 innings, and is next in line for saves (five in 2011) should Kimbrel suffer an injury. Fellow southpaw ERIC O'FLAHERTY had a 0.98 ERA (8 ER in 73.2 IP) and 32 holds, just three fewer than Venters.
MIAMI: HITTING: Ozzie Guillen takes over as manager for the newly named Miami Marlins, who will open their new retractable-roof Marlins Ballpark in 2012. Indoor games could generate more offense, but the fences are pretty deep (340' to left, 384' to 392' power alleys, 416' center and 335' right). New SS JOSE REYES led the NL with a .337 average and posted a career-best .384 OBP. Malcontent HANLEY RAMIREZ will reluctantly move to 3B, but hopefully he will play harder under Guillen than he has under the previous two skippers. OF GIANCARLO STANTON hit 34 HR last year and will drive in 100 if Ramirez stays healthy. OF LOGAN MORRISON cranked 23 bombs, but his batting average dipped to .247 with this new-found power. 1B GABY SANCHEZ fizzled after August 1 (.211 BA), but still had 19 HR and 78 RBI. OF EMILIO BONIFACIO swiped 40 bases and led the team with a .296 average, but he'll move down the order because of Reyes. C JOHN BUCK and 2B OMAR INFANTE's jobs are secure, but 22-year-old prospect MATT DOMINGUEZ might start 2012 in Triple-A instead of sitting and watching Ramirez and Sanchez at the corner infield spots.
STARTING PITCHING: JOSH JOHNSON is dominant when healthy, but he's made only 88 starts over the past five seasons. His shoulder feels great after surgery last year, and he expects to take the mound on Opening Day. MARK BUEHRLE followed his former manager and signed a 4-year, $58M deal with Miami. The 33-year-old lefty was 13-9 with a 3.59 ERA last year, his 11th straight season of 200+ IP and 10+ wins. RICKY NOLASCO once again had 10 wins and a strong K-to-BB ratio (3.4), but also sported an 8.18 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in his final eight starts. ANIBAL SANCHEZ posted a second straight productive season, fanning 202 batters in 196.1 innings. He did give up twice as many HR (20) as he did in 2010 though. CARLOS ZAMBRANO will begin 2012 in the rotation, but where he ends up is anybody's guess. If Guillen can motivate him, Zambrano has plenty of innings left in his 30-year-old arm.
RELIEF PITCHING: The signing of HEATH BELL to a three-year deal gives the Marlins a reliable long-term closer for the first time since Robb Nen in the mid-'90s. Bell's numbers could suffer a bit with the move to a smaller ballpark and an alarming drop in strikeout rate (11.1 in 2010 to 7.3 in 2011), but he still throws 94 mph. STEVE CISHEK will be the main set-up man for Bell and could see a handful of saves, converting all three opportunities last year and fanning 55 batters in 54.2 innings. MIKE DUNN is the lefty set-up man in this bullpen. He has great stuff (100 K in 86 career innings), but remains extremely wild (53 walks in those 86 IP).

(CORRECTS Maholm's ERA vs. Marlins to 0.95)

*Braves-Marlins Preview* ========================


Atlanta (51-38) at Miami (32-56), 12:40 p.m. EDT

Given his recent success against the Miami Marlins, it's not surprising that Justin Upton has snapped out of a brief slump in a big way this week.

Upton will try to keep hitting and left-hander Paul Maholm will seek to add to his recent dominance against the Marlins when the Atlanta Braves go for a team-record seventh consecutive win in Miami on Wednesday.

Upton headed to Marlins Park having gone 3 for 23 (.130) in his previous five games but he has four doubles, a home run and five RBIs in the first two in this series. He went 3 for 5 with a homer, two RBIs and scored three times in a 6-4 win Tuesday.

"(Justin's) starting to swing it like he did early in the season," manager Fredi Gonzalez said of his outfielder, who had 12 homers in his first 23 games.

Upton is batting .400 with five homers, nine doubles, two triples and 21 RBIs in his last 22 games against the Marlins. He'll try to add to those numbers while helping Maholm (9-7, 3.81 ERA) continue his success versus Miami (32-57).

The left-hander is 3-0 with a 0.95 ERA in his last four starts against the Marlins, and has kept them scoreless for 13 2-3 innings. He yielded one hit and three walks over seven frames in his only matchup this season, a 2-0 victory April 8.

Maholm had a two-start win streak snapped Friday as he gave up five runs and nine hits - including a season-high two homers - over six innings in a 5-4 defeat in Philadelphia. He allowed four of those runs in the first three innings.

"I made some mistakes and they hit them hard," Maholm told the team's website. "There were a few plays we could have taken care of, but it's one of those days where you battle and see how long you can go."

Maholm will next face a Marlins team that's batted .185 during a five-game skid after hitting .257 during a 10-3 stretch. Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton has been slumping even longer, going 5 for 35 (.143) with 13 strikeouts and one extra-base hit in his last 10 games.

Jacob Turner (2-1, 2.30) looks to rebound from his first loss of the season. In his return to his home state, the right-hander allowed four runs over six innings Friday in a 4-1 defeat in St. Louis after posting a 1.76 ERA in his first six starts.

"I wish I would have pitched a little better and pitched a little deeper into the game," he told the team's website.

Turner lost his only start against the Braves on Sept. 27, giving up four runs - two earned - over six innings.

The Braves are 12-2 all-time at Marlins Park and have won 20 of 25 overall in the series.
