- LF Raimel Tapia
- 2B Garrett Hampson
- RF Charlie Blackmon
- SS Trevor Story
- 3B Ryan McMahon
- CF Yonathan Daza
- 1B Joshua Fuentes
- C Elias Díaz
- RHP Chi Chi González (2021 season stats: 4.84 ERA, 4.66 FIP, 12.3 K%, 42.9 HardHit% in 48.1 IP)
Notes: Colorado’s star shortstop has been reinstated from the injured list for his first game action since May 29...When you think of the Rockies, you think of inflated offensive numbers. But Ryan McMahon is their lone player with more than five home runs this season...González has actually fared far better at home than on the road. All six of the long balls against him this season have been away from Coors Field.
- SS Jazz Chisholm Jr.
- CF Starling Marte
- 1B Jesús Aguilar
- LF Corey Dickerson
- RF Adam Duvall
- C Jorge Alfaro
- 2B José Devers
- 3B Jon Berti
- LHP Trevor Rogers (2021 season stats: 1.97 ERA, 2.49 FIP, 29.7 K%, 38.2 HardHit% in 68.2 IP)
Notes: Corey Dickerson came up short Wednesday batting with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth. Since joining the Marlins, he’s 14-for-86 (.163 BA) with 0 HR when up with runners in scoring position...The well-rested pitchers available out of the Marlins bullpen (haven’t pitched in at least two days) are Richard Bleier, Ross Detwiler, Yimi García and Zach Pop.
