The Marlins had to cut short batting practice Tuesday when it began to rain at Shea Stadium. The tarp is out.
-- Note that the Mets benched Delgado against the Marlins' lefty, Andrew Miller.
-- A rotation note for the Marlins: manager Fredi Gonzalez is going with a 4-man rotation for the first two series of the road trip (New York and Philadelphia). Burke Badenhop is the odd man out and will pitch out of the bullpen. Gonzalez is taking advance of Thursday's off day to set up a rotation that excludes the rookie Badenhop.
Scott Olsen will pitch Wednesday, and then Gonzalez will come back with Mark Hendrickson on Friday to start the Philadelphia series. Ricky Nolasco and Andrew Miller will pitch Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
