Welcome to Tuesday’s Padres (45-48) vs. Marlins (34-57) game thread.

Throughout the 2019 season, Fish Stripes is your home for daily Fish Picks prop bets. The monthly points leader for July, August, etc. wins Fish Stripes merchandise prizes. We’re also saving something special for the overall full-season points leader. The best seller in our store: Caleb “KKKKKKKaleb” Smith shirts!

The Fish Picks leaderboard will update daily to let you know where you stand.

Padres Lineup

  1. SS Fernando Tatís Jr.
  2. 1B Eric Hosmer
  3. 3B Manny Machado
  4. RF Franmil Reyes
  5. LF Hunter Renfroe
  6. C Francisco Mejía
  7. 2B Ian Kinsler
  8. CF Manuel Margot
  9. P Logan Allen (4.50 ERA, 3.82 FIP, 16.7 K%, 57.1 Hard Hit% in 18.0 IP)

Notes: The rookie phenom Tatís (.339/.406/.615, 14 HR, 14 SB in 249 PA) was on the injured list when these clubs previously met in San Diego. Win or lose, excited to see him in action on both sides of the ball.

A West Palm Beach native, Allen hasn’t appeared in a game in 12 days. The time off protects his young arm, but that rust generally makes it more difficult to command pitches.

Marlins Lineup

  1. SS Miguel Rojas
  2. LF Harold Ramírez
  3. 1B Garrett Cooper
  4. RF Brian Anderson
  5. 2B Starlin Castro
  6. C Jorge Alfaro
  7. CF César Puello
  8. 3B Yadiel Rivera
  9. P Jordan Yamamoto (1.24 ERA, 2.80 FIP, 27.0 K%, 43.1 Hard Hit% in 29.0 IP)

Notes: Unfortunate news for right-hander Austin Brice, whose career year—1.88 ERA, 3.73 FIP in 38.1 IP—has been interrupted by a forearm flexor strain. That totally removes the possibility of him being traded by the July 31 deadline, and the rest of his 2019 season could be in jeopardy depending on the severity of the strain. In a corresponding move, Tayron Guerrero returns from a middle finger blister...I asked the Fish Stripes staff for their Marlins MVP picks, second-half expectations for the team and feelings on the pace of the rebuild in the latest roundtable. Take a peek and share your own takes in the comments!
