So last night's game between the Miami Marlins and Kansas City Royals did not go well, but the Fish have their best weapon on the mound tonight in Jose Fernandez. Fernandez will take on the surprising (again) Bruce Chen.

Pitching Matchup
Proj Win% Proj ERA FIP ERA Marlins Royals ERA FIP Proj ERA Proj Win%
.557 3.49 2.83 2.53 Fernandez Chen 1.79 3.72 4.85 .404

Bruce Chen has been working primarily out of the bullpen and has looked really good. Jose Fernandez has worked entirely out of the rotation and has looked like the most dominant pitcher in the game in stretches. So this matchup seems clear.

Lineup
Order Player Proj wOBA vs. LHP
1 Christian Yelich .291
2 Ed Lucas .302
3 Giancarlo Stanton .418
4 Logan Morrison .327
5 Placido Polanco .296
6 Donovan Solano .292
7 Adeiny Hechavarria .287
8 Jake Marisnick .309
9 Jeff Mathis .271

The Marlins are sending out a passable lineup, though it is placed in a strange fashion. The Fish are also facing Bruce Chen, so that should help a little.

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. Royals 3-1
