NL East Notes: Adam Conley wins rotation spot, Mets set roster, Drew Stubbs' spring

The latest news from around the National League East.

Entering Spring Training, the Marlins were set to hold a competition for the final spot in their rotation.

Edwin Jackson, Brad Hand, David Phelps, Justin Nicolino and Adam Conley all had the opportunity to earn a starting job.

After a solid spring, Conley won the competition.

Over 9.2 innings this spring, Conley pitched to a 1.86 ERA. While he did have success in his spring outings, Conley's performance as the 2015 campaign ended likely factored into the Marlins' decision.

Over 67.0 innings, Conley pitched to a 3.76 ERA and 3.81 FIP.
