He was dealt to the Miami Marlins on December 19, 2014, along with Martin Prado, for Nate Eovaldi, Garrett Jones, and Domingo German.

He only pitched 112 innings, yet he had a 77/33 K/W ratio. On August 18th, he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right forearm, and his season was cut short.

Although the source of the injury was unknown, he had to depart his final start of the season on August 16th after only 2 1/3 innings due to discomfort.

He was mostly a reliever when he returned in 2016, earning only five starts in 64 appearances. In 86 2/3 innings, he finished 7-6 with a 2.28 ERA and 114 strikeouts. He also made four saves.
