Tampa Bay Rays v Miami Marlins

Welcome to Monday’s Marlins (14-15) vs. Mets (15-19) game thread.

Fish Picks is BACK and better than ever! Our free-to-play daily prop bets contest is open to all fans. Courtesy of a new Fish Stripes partnership with Fantom Drip, weekly points leaders will win their choice of a Marlins face covering (five different varieties available) or the exclusive Fish Stripes design.

Congrats to Twitter user Binyomin Barman on his victory last week. Point totals have been reset to begin this new week.

The Fish Picks leaderboard will update daily to let you know where you stand.

Notes: As the Marlins seek creative solutions at the trade deadline, veterans Jonathan Villar and Brandon Kintzler are both reportedly available for the right price. Longtime Marlins left-hander Adam Conley has joined Brett Eibner, Brian Navarreto, Josh D. Smith and Jesús Tinoco in DFA limbo...More coverage of the rumors here.

Baseball Savant

Notes: The Mets suffered a gut-wrenching sweep against the Yankees during Sunday’s doubleheader, using most of their key relievers in the process. If deGrom repeats his performance from last week, they’re very likely to win this contest anyway. It will be critical to get his pitch count elevated.
