Marlins Lineup

  1. SS Jazz Chisholm Jr.
  2. CF Starling Marte
  3. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  4. RF Adam Duvall
  5. LF Jesús Sánchez
  6. 2B Jon Berti
  7. C Sandy León
  8. 3B Isan Díaz
  9. LHP Trevor Rogers (2021 season stats: 2.02 ERA, 2.56 FIP, 29.8 K%, 36.8 HardHit% in 75.2 IP)
Braxton Garrett- 2021 Frequency of Pitches by Pitch Speed Baseball Savant

Notes: Outfielder Jesús Sánchez has mashed his way back to The Show. The call-up coincides with Corey Dickerson being placed on the 10-day IL (Don Mattingly implied that Dickerson will miss far more than the 10-day minimum)...The well-rested pitchers available out of the Marlins bullpen (haven’t pitched in at least two days) are Richard Bleier, John Curtiss, Ross Detwiler, Yimi García, Luís Madero and Zach Pop.

Cardinals Lineup

  1. RF Tommy Edman
  2. CF Dylan Carlson
  3. 1B Paul Goldschmidt
  4. 3B Nolan Arenado
  5. LF Tyler O’Neill
  6. C Yadier Molina
  7. 2B Edmundo Sosa
  8. SS Paul DeJong
  9. LHP Kwang Hyun Kim (2021 season stats: 4.05 ERA, 4.03 FIP, 20.3 K%, 38.6 HardHit% in 40.0 IP)
Adam Wainwright- 2021 Frequency of Pitches by Pitch Speed Baseball Savant

Notes: The Cardinals sit atop the National League with a 120 wRC+ against left-handed pitching, but that’s a relatively small sample—they have had the fewest plate appearances vs. LHP of any MLB team (421)...Edman leads the major leagues with 297 plate appearances and he’s tied for fifth with 12 stolen bases.
