Pitching Matchup

Team Pitcher 2017 ERA 2017 FIP 2017 ZiPS Projected ERA
MIA Edinson Volquez 3.45 4.24 4.33
SEA Felix Hernandez 2.95 3.46 3.74

This would've been a marquee pitching matchup a couple years ago. As it stands, it could still be pretty good.

Today's Lineups

Dee Gordon - 2B Jarrod Dyson - LF
Martin Prado - 3B Mitch Haniger - RF
Christian Yelich - CF Robinson Cano - 2B
Giancarlo Stanton - DH Nelson Cruz - DH
Justin Bour - 1B Kyle Seager - 3B
Marcell Ozuna - LF Taylor Motter - SS
J.T. Realmuto - C Mike Freeman - 1B
Miguel Rojas - SS Mike Zunino - C
Ichiro Suzuki - RF Leonys Martin - CF
Edinson Volquez - RHP Felix Hernandez - RHP

Prado returns to the lineup, batting second and manning third base as is his custom. Realmuto bumps down to seventh. Miguel Rojas at short, batting eighth. Giancarlo Stanton takes a turn at DH, and patrolling right as he did for so many years prior in this stadium is Ichiro! What, you didn't think they weren't going to play him on his bobblehead night, did you?
