Giants Lineup

  1. 2B Joe Panik
  2. LF Mike Yastrzemski
  3. C Buster Posey
  4. 1B Brandon Belt
  5. 3B Evan Longoria
  6. RF Kevin Pillar
  7. SS Brandon Crawford
  8. CF Steven Duggar
  9. P Jeff Samardzija (3.27 ERA, 5.11 FIP, 19.0 K%, 34.8 Hard Hit% in 52.1 IP)

Notes: The Giants had to travel all the way from San Francisco for this series, but at least had an off-day to ease the physical toll. They rank dead last in the majors—yes, even behind the Marlins—with a .221 team batting average and .286 on-base percentage.

Marlins Lineup

  1. LF Curtis Granderson
  2. RF Garrett Cooper
  3. 3B Brian Anderson
  4. 1B Neil Walker
  5. 2B Starlin Castro
  6. CF Harold Ramírez
  7. C Jorge Alfaro
  8. SS Miguel Rojas
  9. P Trevor Richards (4.14 ERA, 5.08 FIP, 21.2 K%, 35.9 Hard Hit% in 54.1 IP)

Notes: Most of the players in this lineup are listed on the 2019 MLB All-Star ballot. You have 25 days to vote in “The Primary” round (and remember to write in Harold!)...In his solid outing against the Tigers, Richards threw changeups for 46 of 91 total pitches, relying on it more than he ever has in a major league start (50.5% usage)...Walker, Ramírez, Granderson and Sergio Romo are just a few of the new faces for the Fish in 2019. My article from this morning updated the progress of key players who either joined or departed the organization this past offseason.
