Welcome to Tuesday’s Marlins (15-19, +17 RD) vs. Diamondbacks (16-19, -12 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. Please use this link!

Picks are only valid if submitted to us prior to first pitch.

The Fish Picks leaderboard will be updated daily. There was great participation in the contest on Monday, but sadly nobody picked a Perfect Game.

Pablo López - 2021 Frequency of Pitches by Pitch Speed Baseball Savant

Notes: López has the awkward distinction of being the best winless starting pitcher in baseball. The primary culprit behind that has been terrible run support, and unfortunately, we can’t be confident about that changing in this game...Miguel Rojas loves playing against the D-backs. His career .866 OPS (111 PA) in this matchup is significantly higher that he has against any other National League team...Garrett Cooper is riding a season-high four-game hitting streak, however he’s two-plus weeks removed from his last extra-base hit...The well-rested pitchers available out of the Marlins bullpen (haven’t pitched in at least two days) are Anthony Bass, Anthony Bender, John Curtiss, Dylan Floro, Yimi García and Zach Pop.

Diamondbacks Lineup

  1. CF Pavin Smith
  2. C Carson Kelly
  3. 3B Asdrúbal Cabrera
  4. LF David Peralta
  5. 1B Christian Walker
  6. 2B Eduardo Escobar
  7. SS Nick Ahmed
  8. RF Josh Rojas
  9. LHP Madison Bumgarner (2021 season stats: 4.91 ERA, 3.92 FIP, 26.1 K%, 42.7 HardHit% in 36.2 IP)
