Welcome to Wednesday’s Marlins (15-20, +9 RD) vs. Diamondbacks (17-19, -4 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 Tuesday, but once again, nobody picked a Perfect Game.

At the end of each month, the Fish Picks points leader—whoever has the most total correct picks—will receive a t-shirt of their choice from our partners at Legends of Dade!


Marlins Lineup

Diamondbacks Lineup

Notes: Zac Gallen will need to wait another year to pitch his revenge game—mere hours prior to first pitch, the Diamondbacks have placed him on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow sprain. Christian Walker (right oblique soreness) is sidelined as well...Asdrúbal Cabrera has reached base safely in 15 consecutive games, raising his OPS nearly .200 during that span. It’s his longest streak since 2016.
