Braves Lineup

  1. 2B Ozzie Albies
  2. SS Dansby Swanson
  3. 1B Freddie Freeman
  4. RF Nick Markakis
  5. C Tyler Flowers
  6. 3B Johan Camargo
  7. LF Matt Joyce
  8. CF Ender Inciarte
  9. P Julio Teheran (5.35 ERA, 5.02 FIP, 26.2 K%, 42.9 Hard Hit% in 38.2 IP)

Notes: Of the 89 qualified MLB starting pitchers, Teheran is one of only 10 with a 5.00+ earned run average and a 5.00+ Fielder Independent Pitching. The longest-tenured member of the Braves pitching staff, he’s now several years removed from his peak...Ronald Acuña Jr., who has played in every Braves game in 2019, takes a seat for this matinee.

Marlins Lineup

  1. LF Curtis Granderson
  2. 3B Martín Prado
  3. RF Brian Anderson
  4. 1B Neil Walker
  5. 2B Starlin Castro
  6. SS Miguel Rojas
  7. C Chad Wallach
  8. CF Isaac Galloway
  9. P Pablo López (4.78 ERA, 3.01 FIP, 24.4 K%, 34.4 Hard Hit% in 32.0 IP)

Notes: I have been hyping up Harold Ramírez since last winter, and he’s exceeding expectations with Triple-A New Orleans (.361/.415/.567, 144 wRC+, 16.0 K% in 27 G). As the Marlins offense continues to scuffle, it is disappointing that neither he nor Austin Dean are getting the opportunity to prove themselves...Another Sunday means a new Our Noticias news roundup from Christian Cevallos. Check it out.
