- LF Trent Grisham
- C Yasmani Grandal
- RF Christian Yelich
- 1B Eric Thames
- CF Lorenzo Cain
- 2B Cory Spangenberg
- 3B Travis Shaw
- SS Hernán Pérez
- SP Jordan Lyles (4.46 ERA, 4.72 FIP, 24.1 K%, 40.1 Hard Hit% in 121.0 IP)
Notes: The chorus of analysts projecting some regression from Yelich coming off his 2018 NL MVP campaign have been proven wrong—he’s actually gotten better. Slashing .330/.429/.674 and making a serious run at becoming the first 50 HR/30 SB player in MLB history, the former Fish outfielder is established as the best offensive player in the National League...Lyles spent the bulk of this season with the Pirates and posted a 5.36 earned run average, but that has been trimmed to a 2.56 ERA in seven starts since being traded. Exactly half his 124 strikeouts in 2019 have come via the curveball.
- SS Miguel Rojas
- 1B Neil Walker
- RF Garrett Cooper
- 3B Starlin Castro
- C Jorge Alfaro
- 2B Isan Díaz
- LF Harold Ramirez
- CF Jon Berti
- SP Robert Dugger (4.00 ERA, 5.88 FIP, 15.2 K%, 42.9 Hard Hit% in 18.0 IP)
Notes: Dugger’s previous outing at Marlins Park was a seven-inning, seven-strikeout gem against the Reds. Only a bullpen blow-up prevented him from earning the win...The Marlins are 3-2 this year when Berti starts in center field. He looked pretty comfortable out there on Tuesday night!
