Rays Lineup

  1. RF Austin Meadows
  2. LF Tommy Pham
  3. 1B Ji-Man Choi
  4. 2B Brandon Lowe
  5. 3B Yandy Diaz
  6. CF Kevin Kiermaier
  7. SS Willy Adames
  8. C Anthony Benboom
  9. P Ryne Stanek (2.57 ERA, 3.06 FIP, 25.6 K%, 37.5 Hard Hit% in 21.0 IP)

Notes: Stanek is “opening” for the 11th time this season. He made his most recent appearance for the Rays on Sunday. Expect an absolute max of two innings/40 pitches from the hard-throwing right-hander...Southpaw Jalen Beeks is slated to relieve Stanek and pitch the majority of the game.

Marlins Lineup

  1. LF Curtis Granderson
  2. 3B Brian Anderson
  3. 1B Neil Walker
  4. 2B Starlin Castro
  5. RF Garrett Cooper
  6. C Jorge Alfaro
  7. SS Miguel Rojas
  8. CF Rosell Herrera
  9. P José Ureña (4.82 ERA, 4.71 FIP, 15.8 K%, 39.6 Hard Hit% in 46.2 IP)

Notes: Happy birthday, Trevor Richards! The changeup champ turned 26 today. Richards leads the Marlins pitching staff with 170 strikeouts since the start of last season, though Ureña is close behind (162). Celebrating along with him, former Marlin Josh Beckett just turned 39...If the 2019 Marlins have you feeling depressed, The Athletic subscribers can take a trip down memory lane with Dontrelle Willis. Very interesting Q&A with Andre Fernandez. Here’s a taste of it for non-subscribers...

How to watch/listen/follow
