Throughout the 2016 regular season, I'm tracking each player involved in each Marlins game. Using the WPA metric (Wins Probability Added), we can order the players from the most positive impact all the way down to most negative. The top three are our "Heroes," and the bottom three rank as our "Zeroes."


Derek Dietrich (MIA) +43.3%

Dietrich batted sixth in the order for the Marlins and played at second base. He drew a one-out walk in the second inning (+2.6%) then loaded the bases with no outs in the fourth with a single to center field (+8.9%). He added a two-run home run in the sixth to give the Fish a 3-1 lead (+24.9%) and a two-out, two run double in the seventh inning to stretch Miami's lead out to 6-1 (+6.8%).

Justin Bour (MIA) +10.9%

Bour played first base and batted fifth for the Marlins. He struck out to lead off the second (-2.3%), drew a walk in the fourth to put runners at first and second (+6.8%), and hit a one-out double and scored in the sixth (+6.5%).

Kyle Barraclough (MIA) +8.4%

Barraclough inherited runners on first and second with nobody out in the eighth, then struck out Freddie Freeman (+4.8%) before allowing Jeff Francoeur to sacrifice fly Ender Inciarte in for a run (+3.9%). He struck out Nick Markakis to end the inning (+2.4%).
