- FiveThirtyEight gives the Marlins a 46% chance to win their series opener against the Diamondbacks.

- Jim Bowden ranks him among MLB’s top rookie hitters while selecting Trevor Rogers for the top spot on the pitching side.
- For a few glorious hours, Sandy Alcantara was leading the majors in innings pitched (he was soon surpassed by reigning NL Cy Young award winner Trevor Bauer).

- The Mets have also been winning a bunch of games, but ace Jacob deGrom (right side tightness) may miss some time.
- Max Meyer and Eury Pérez are among the youngest players in their respective MiLB leagues. So is José Devers after being optioned to Jacksonville on Saturday.
