- CF Trent Grisham
- C Yasmani Grandal
- 3B Mike Moustakas
- LF Ryan Braun
- 1B Eric Thames
- RF Ben Gamel
- SS Hernán Pérez
- 2B Cory Spangenberg
- SP Zach Davies (3.69 ERA, 4.78 FIP, 15.2 K%, 34.3 Hard Hit% in 141.1 IP)
Notes: Christian Yelich’s brilliant 2019 season came to an abrupt end on Tuesday. A broken right kneecap could also threaten his availability for Opening Day 2020. Even for bitter Marlins fans, there’s no satisfaction in seeing him suffer from this fluke injury in the prime of his career. Major League Baseball is at its best when talents like Yelich are on the field...Davies has a very Sandy Alcantara-like statistical profile. Although I’ve noted how well Sandy is progressing lately, that’s a shockingly low standard for somebody who is leading the rotation for a legitimate postseason contender. Davies seldom gets the freedom to work deep into games—he earned his most recent win on July 18.
- SS Jon Berti
- 2B Isan Díaz
- RF Garrett Cooper
- 3B Starlin Castro

- SP Pablo López (4.75 ERA, 3.99 FIP, 22.0 K%, 36.3 Hard Hit% in 91.0 IP)
Notes: Brian Anderson had been leading the Marlins in most offensive categories this season. But an extended hot streak—combined with Anderson’s hand injury—has vaulted Castro past him in runs scored, runs batted in and total bases, and he’s only one home run away from matching Anderson’s total, too...Jarlin García worked two more scoreless innings on Tuesday, lowering his earned run average to 2.78. That’s one of the best marks ever for a Marlins left-handed pitcher...Highly touted shortstop prospect Jazz Chisholm shared some interesting thoughts on the FOX Sports Florida broadcast.

More from Jazz Chisholm: "I wanna hit .350. I wanna set my goals as high as I can every year. I wanna be in the MVP race every year. I wanna win batting titles. I wanna help my team win. I wanna come and perform for my team so we can win every game."— Fish Stripes (@fishstripes) September 11, 2019
