Marlins Lineup

  1. SS Jon Berti
  2. 2B Isan Díaz
  3. RF Brian Anderson
  4. 1B Garrett Cooper
  5. 3B Starlin Castro
  6. CF Lewis Brinson
  7. LF Harold Ramírez
  8. C Bryan Holaday
  9. P Jordan Yamamoto (3.94 ERA, 3.88 FIP, 25.3 K%, 42.0 Hard Hit% in 48.0 IP)

Notes: Miguel Rojas (right hamstring strain) is having an MRI today to assess the extent of his injury. Meanwhile, the Marlins placed him on the 10-day injured list, promoting Deven Marrero from Triple-A New Orleans...Neither of them have received steady playing time, but Holaday (.844) and Berti (.808) quietly lead all Marlins players this season in OPS. Both are making compelling cases to be retained for the 2020 season as high-character, complimentary pieces...In five consecutive games, Marlins starting pitchers have failed to last beyond five innings. Not surprisingly, the team has lost five in a row.

Mets Lineup

  1. RF Jeff McNeil
  2. SS Amed Rosario
  3. CF Michael Conforto
  4. 1B Pete Alonso
  5. LF J.D. Davis

Notes: The Mets have already clinched the season series over the Fish with their 10th head-to-head win on Tuesday. With an off day upcoming for them on Thursday and Zack Wheeler logging eight strong innings, all arms figure to be available out of their bullpen.
