Marlins Lineup

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

  9. C Jorge Alfaro

P José Ureña (6.00 ERA, 5.79 FIP, 14.7 K%, 44.7 Hard Hit% in 15.0 IP)

Notes: Joyce’s slugging percentage has plummeted to .327 in recent weeks, making it difficult to understand why Don Mattingly continues batting him cleanup...Marte’s overall numbers as a Marlin won’t wow you, but he has made himself indispensable by stepping up in clutch situations, as Juan Páez explains...The Marlins have finalized their roster of 40 postseason-eligible players (not to be confused with the standard 40-man roster, though there is a lot of overlap). See below.

Braves Lineup

  1. CF Ronald Acuña Jr.
  2. 1B Freddie Freeman
  3. DH Marcell Ozuna
  4. C Travis d’Arnaud
  5. LF Adam Duvall
  6. 2B Ozzie Albies
  7. RF Nick Markakis
  8. 3B Austin Riley
  9. SS Dansby Swanson

P Bryse Wilson (7.04 ERA, 7.75 FIP, 15.8 K%, 52.0 Hard Hit% in 7.2 IP)

Baseball Savant

Notes: Like Huascar Ynoa on Monday, Wilson is a highly regarded Braves prospect who has a brief and shaky major league track record. He worked four innings of one-run relief against the Marlins on Sept. 9...Markakis is in the midst of one of the worst slumps of his distinguished career, slashing .130/.190/.204 through 14 September games.
