New, comments

The Marlins look to bounce back after losing four in a row to begin the second half

When it comes to the Marlins, all fans can think of is the upcoming trade deadline. However, there is still baseball being played. One potential trade candidate for the Marlins is Mat Latos, who takes the mound tonight in Arizona.

Pitching Matchup:

SO in Last 5 ERA in Last 5 W/L in Last 5 Marlins Diamondbacks W/L in Last 5 ERA in Last 5 SO in Last 5
31 3.31 2-2 Mat Latos Jeremy Hellickson 2-2 4.94 31

Tonight's start will directly impact Latos' trade value as we approach July 31st. In his last five, Latos has fared well, as opposed to his opponent, Jeremy Hellickson, who has struggled.

Today's Lineups

MIAMI MARLINS ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS
Ichiro Suzuki - RF A.J. Pollock - CF
Martin Prado - 2B Chris Owings - 2B
Christian Yelich - CF Paul Goldschmidt - 1B
Justin Bour - 1B David Peralta - LF
Mike Morse - LF Yasmany Tomas - RF
Derek Dietrich - 3B Jake Lamb - 3B
J.T. Realmuto - C Welington Castillo - C
Adeiny Hechavarria - SS Nick Ahmed - SS
Mat Latos - RHP Jeremy Hellickson - RHP
It seems as if Ichiro has found his spot batting leadoff. Hechavarria moves down to 8th in the lineup, while Mike Morse is slotting in at fifth, playing left.
Notes:
- Since May 12th, Mike Morse only has three hits as a position player, two of them being in Philadelphia last weekend.
- How will Mat Latos pitch with many Major League scouts in the building
Bold Prediction: Marlins win 6-3
