Welcome to Wednesday’s Marlins (10-13, +8 RD) vs. Brewers (14-9, +11 RD) game thread.

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. SS Miguel Rojas
  2. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  3. RF Garrett Cooper
  4. LF Corey Dickerson
  5. CF Adam Duvall
  6. 3B Jon Berti
  7. 2B Isan Díaz
  8. C Chad Wallach
  9. RHP Sandy Alcantara (2021 season stats: 3.34 ERA, 3.23 FIP, 26.5 K%, 44.0 Hard Hit% in 29.2 IP)
Baseball Savant

Notes: After suffering a left hamstring strain on Tuesday, Jazz Chisholm Jr. has landed on the 10-day injured list. Isan will temporarily attempt to fill his shoes...Chad Wallach is in a funk defensively, struggling to frame pitches—especially to his glove side—and to control opposing baserunners. Sunday was the first time in his career that he allowed three stolen bases in a game...The well-rested pitchers available out of the Marlins bullpen (haven’t pitched in at least two days) are Yimi García, Ross Detwiler and Zach Pop.

Brewers Lineup

  1. 2B Kolten Wong
  2. 1B Daniel Vogelbach
  3. C Omar Narváez
  4. 3B Travis Shaw
  5. RF Tyrone Taylor
  6. LF Billy McKinney
  7. CF Jackie Bradley Jr.
  8. SS Luis Urías
  9. RHP Zack Godley (2020 season stats: 8.16 ERA, 7.10 FIP, 19.6 K%, 42.3 HardHit% in 28.2 IP)
Baseball Savant

Notes: Godley is making his 2021 season debut after signing a minor league deal with Milwaukee last month...Kolten Wong has been awesome in the leadoff spot since returning from the injured list (.588/.611/.941, 0 K in 18 PA)...Christian Yelich (lower back strain) will remain sidelined for this entire series...As mentioned in my old friends roundup, Brad Boxberger is doing solidly for the Brew Crew in middle relief.
