Marlins vs Royals: Game 124 Thread

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Coming off of a three-game sweep of the Pirates, Miami looks to take down Kansas City amid more injuries.

Pitching Matchup
Team Starter ERA FIP 2016 ZIPS Projected ERA
KC Yordano Ventura 4.46 4.82 4.20
MIA Andrew Cashner 4.92 4.89 4.30

Cashner (4-9) and Ventura (8-9) have had pretty similar seasons so far. Their strikeout and walk rates are almost identical and both have high BABIPs, although Cashner's really stands out at .306. The Marlins' near-deadline acquisition has been mediocre through his first six starts with the squad, but only surrendered one run in a five-inning no decision last start against the Reds.

Today's Lineups
