- LF Jeff McNeil
- 3B J.D. Davis
- 2B Robinson Canó
- 1B Pete Alonso
- RF Brandon Nimmo
- SS Adeiny Hechavarría
- CF Juan Lagares
- C Tomás Nido
- P Noah Syndergaard (4.74 ERA, 3.61 FIP, 25.6 K%, 32.1 Hard Hit% in 57.0 IP)
Notes: Nobody is on a hotter seat than Mickey Callaway. This could the final visit that he makes to Marlins Park as Mets manager, especially if they suffer the humiliation of a sweep at the hands of a franchise that hasn’t completed a sweep of any opponent in the past 20 months.
Sunday's game will mark 606 days since the Marlins last completed a series sweep. The team they swept back then? The New York Mets. https://t.co/NyuARPjImL— Fish Stripes (@fishstripes) May 18, 2019
- CF Jon Berti
- RF Garrett Cooper
- 3B Brian Anderson
- 1B Neil Walker
- 2B Starlin Castro
- LF Curtis Granderson
- SS Miguel Rojas
- C Chad Wallach
- P Sandy Alcantara (5.11 ERA, 5.24 FIP, 14.1 K%, 28.6 Hard Hit% in 44.0 IP)
Notes: Sandy must miss more bats with the premium stuff he has. It’s becoming increasingly hard to justify keeping him in the Marlins rotation rather than extending an opportunity to Zac Gallen or Elieser Hernandez...Jorge Alfaro (mild left calf strain) hopes to avoid the injured list. Keep in mind that he and Wallach are the only catchers on the Marlins 40-man roster; an IL stint would require a corresponding move to create room for a third-stringer—presumably Bryan Holaday—to come up...More Marlins storylines and entertainment included in the weekly Christian Cevallos “Our Noticias” roundup.
