The Miami Marlins are looking to bounce back versus the New York Mets after last night's heartbreaking loss. The path to doing so is paved by Nathan Eovaldi versus Mets prospect Zack Wheeler.

Pitching Matchup

Proj Win% Proj ERA FIP ERA Marlins Mets ERA FIP Proj ERA Proj Win%
.412 4.77 4.24 3.54 Eovaldi Wheeler 3.72 5.57 4.20 .472

The matchup between hot prospect Wheeler and hot fastball Eovaldi should be a fun one to watch. If anything, it is clear the Marlins have an intriguing pitcher who still has not put it together.

Lineup

Order Player Proj wOBA vs. RHP
1 Christian Yelich ---
2 Adeiny Hechavarria .270
3 Giancarlo Stanton .394
4 Logan Morrison .355
5 Ed Lucas ---
6 Donovan Solano .275
7 Jake Marisnick ---
8 Jeff Mathis .255
9 Pitcher ---

The Marlins have moved Yelich to the leadoff spot over the hapless Hechavarria, and that should be a good move. Still, batting Hechavarria second is still giving him too many plate appearances.

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. Mets 5-4
