Welcome to Sunday’s Marlins (9-11, +2 RD) vs. Giants (13-8, +9) game thread. Barring a postseason matchup, this four-game set will be the final meeting between these teams in 2021.

During every Marlins game, join in on the Fish Picks prop bets fun. It’s always free to participate and the prizes are real.

To make it possible for us to count all of your individual picks in an efficient manner (instead of just the “perfect games”), we are transitioning to this Fish Picks submission form. Picks are only valid if submitted to us prior to first pitch.

At the end of each month, the Fish Picks points leader will receive a t-shirt of their choice from our partners at Legends of Dade!

The Fish Picks leaderboard will be updated daily.


Marlins Lineup

  1. 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr.
  2. SS Miguel Rojas
  3. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  4. RF Garrett Cooper
  5. LF Corey Dickerson
  6. CF Adam Duvall
  7. 3B Jon Berti
  8. C Chad Wallach
  9. LHP Ross Detwiler (2021 season stats: 1.23 ERA, 2.69 FIP, 28.1 K%, 16.7 HardHit% in 7.1 IP)

Notes: Today, the Marlins will be using their seventh different starting pitcher of the season. For context, they used 13 different starters in 2020. Craig Mish initially reported that rookie Paul Campbell would get the honor, but plans have changed due to inclement weather. Campbell will presumably handle multiple innings out of the bullpen once the team feels confident that the precipitation has passed...At least five Marlins players/staff participating in minor league spring training in Jupiter have tested positive for COVID-19. Although obviously distressing, the big league team should not be directly impacted—the club’s top reinforcements are either in San Francisco right now as part of the taxi squad or based in Jacksonville with the Fish Tank.

Giants Lineup

  1. CF Austin Slater
  2. RF Mike Yastrzemski
  3. LF Darin Ruf
  4. 1B Brandon Belt
  5. 3B Wilmer Flores
  6. 2B Tommy La Stella
  7. C Curt Casali
  8. SS Mauricio Dubón
  9. RHP Logan Webb (2021 season stats: 5.87 ERA, 4.92 FIP, 22.5 K%, 37.5 HardHit% in 15.1 IP)

Notes: On Saturday, Buster Posey became the first player in Giants history to catch 1,000 career games.
