MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Miami Marlins Jim Rassol-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Friday’s Marlins (20-19) vs. Phillies (21-19) game thread. We’ll cover both ends of the doubleheader here.

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. The 2020 full-season points leader gets their pick of two new Marlins-themed t-shirts.

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


Phillies Game 1 Lineup

  1. LF Andrew McCutchen
  2. 1B Rhys Hoskins
  3. RF Bryce Harper
  4. C J.T. Realmuto
  5. 2B Jean Segura
  6. SS Didi Gregorius
  7. DH Phil Gosselin
  8. 3B Alec Bohm
  9. CF Adam Haseley

P Aaron Nola (2.74 ERA, 3.36 FIP, 34.9 K%, 41.1 Hard Hit% in 49.1 IP)

Baseball Savant

Notes: Very similar lineup as the series opener, except with Gosselin starting in place of Andrew Knapp...His overall stats won’t wow you, but Bohm has already shown his poise in high-leverage situations. The rookie leads all Phillies by a wide margin in Win Probability Added in 2020 (1.68 WPA)...A freaky finger injury to Zack Wheeler will force the Phils to rely entirely on their bullpen for tonight’s second game. “Hide the women and children,” John Stolnis writes regarding the relief corps. As he analyzes on The Good Phight, their fastballs are failing them.

Marlins Game 1 Lineup

  1. LF Corey Dickerson
  2. CF Starling Marte
  3. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  4. RF Matt Joyce
  5. 3B Brian Anderson
  6. DH Garrett Cooper
  7. SS Miguel Rojas
  8. 2B Jazz Chisholm
  9. C Chad Wallach

P Trevor Rogers (3.00 ERA, 4.58 FIP, 33.3 K%, 26.5 Hard Hit% in 15.0 IP)

Baseball Savant

Notes: Jorge Alfaro is being saved for the second game. Those extra hours of rest are well-deserved following Thursday’s heroic walk-off...I highly recommend checking out this breakdown of Rogers’ rookie season from Aram Leighton. Eventually, the ordinary quality of his stuff and the limited breadth of his repertoire may lead to a rough outing, but the 22-year-old’s command and pitchability always give him a chance. Also, right-handed flamethrower Johan Quezada has joined the active roster. Get familiar with him.
