Welcome to Sunday’s Marlins (30-29) vs. Yankees (33-26) game thread, the final one of the MLB regular season. Even Martín Prado is probably surprised by what the Fish have achieved in 2020.

- DH Corey Dickerson

- 3B Brian Anderson
- RF Matt Joyce

- SS Jazz Chisholm
- C Chad Wallach
- LF Magneuris Sierra
P José Ureña (6.00 ERA, 6.28 FIP, 13.8 K%, 42.6 Hard Hit% in 21.0 IP)
Notes: You’ll see a handful of different Marlins pitchers today with Ureña only expected to go one time through the Yankees lineup...Miguel Rojas finishes as a .300 hitter for the first time in his career by getting a rest today...The Marlins are likely to be the No. 6 playoff seed in the National League (matching up with the Cubs in the Wild Card Series). Tim Huwe of our sister site Bleed Cubbie Blue is rooting for that matchup. Here is the full breakdown of seeding scenarios from ESPN’s Jeff Passan.
- 1B DJ LeMahieu
- RF Aaron Judge
- CF Aaron Hicks
- DH Luke Voit
- 3B Gio Urshela
- SS Gleyber Torres
- LF Brett Gardner
- C Gary Sánchez
- 2B Tyler Wade
Notes: This will be Schmidt’s first major league start (he made two relief appearances earlier this month). The fifth-ranked Yankees prospect according to MLB Pipeline, he’s considered a well-rounded pitcher with good control and a deep repertoire. Schmidt has embraced analytics throughout his development as detailed by Lindsey Adler of The Athletic.
