Fish Picks is BACK and better than ever! Our free-to-play daily prop bets contest is open to all fans. I was thrilled to see so many participants during the exhibition games. Courtesy of a new Fish Stripes partnership with Fantom Drip, weekly points leaders will win their choice of a Marlins face covering (first winner to be selected based on July 24-August 2 point totals).
The Fish Picks leaderboard will update daily to let you know where you stand.

P Caleb Smith (2019 stats: 4.52 ERA, 5.11 FIP, 26.0 K%, 35.7 Hard Hit% in 153.1 IP)
Notes: The Marlins enter the day with 12.2% playoff odds, according to FanGraphs, their highest mark since August 28, 2017...Dr. K pitched twice in Philadelphia last season, including one quality start and one clunker. Look for him to add occasional curveballs to his pitch mix in 2020...Earlier this week, Don Mattingly identified Brad Boxberger, Yimi García and Brandon Kintzler as his most-trusted relievers, and they were the only relievers used on Friday. This game should give us a first look at several of the other options.
Can’t wait to get after it Saturday against the Phillies https://t.co/WjhR6ehGCX— Caleb Smith (@CalebASmith12) July 23, 2020

P Zack Wheeler (2019 stats: 3.96 ERA, 3.48 FIP, 23.5 K%, 31.6 Hard Hit% in 195.1 IP)
