Welcome to Monday’s Marlins (2-0) vs. Cardinals (1-0) Spring Training game thread.

Need a refresher on what the Fish did over the winter? We got you covered.

Fish Picks has returned! Participate in our no-risk prop bets contest, customized for each Marlins game. It will be held daily during the 2020 regular season, only on special occasions during the spring. Scroll down on this article page for the props.

Here’s the link to the Fish Picks leaderboard.


Cardinals Lineup

  1. RF Dexter Fowler
  2. 3B Matt Carpenter
  3. DH Paul Goldschmidt
  4. C Yadier Molina
  5. SS Brad Miller
  6. 2B Tommy Edman
  7. LF Rangel Ravelo
  8. CF Lane Thomas
  9. 1B John Nogowski

SP John Gant

Notes: During his final season in the Cardinals organization (2017), Sandy Alcantara was teammates with Edman and Nogowski at Double-A and with Fowler, Carpenter, Molina and Gant in the majors.

Marlins Lineup

  1. DH Jonathan Villar
  2. 3B Brian Anderson
  3. LF Corey Dickerson
  4. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  5. RF Garrett Cooper
  6. 2B Jon Berti
  7. CF Magneuris Sierra
  8. C Francisco Cervelli
  9. SS Miguel Rojas

SP Sandy Alcantara

Notes: The top four of Villar-Anderson-Dickerson-Aguilar was also used on Sunday. Seems to be the likely alignment for Opening Day...Cervelli makes his first spring appearance for the Fish. So will Rule 5 Draft pick Sterling Sharp, pitching in relief of Alcantara.
