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

Notes: Pablo López, who I have ranked as the third-strongest Marlins All-Star candidate, was lined up for this start. However, he’s been pushed back until Tuesday. Nothing to worry about—just part of the effort to keep him fresh throughout the season...Every Marlins reliever with the exception of Yimi García got a rest on Sunday. He’s the only guy who’s unlikely to be available tonight (he also pitched on Saturday).

Red Sox Lineup

  1. 2B Christian Arroyo
  2. LF Alex Verdugo
  3. SS Xander Bogaerts
  4. DH Rafael Devers
  5. RF Hunter Renfroe
  6. 3B Marwin González
  7. C Kevin Plawecki
  8. CF Enrique Hernández
  9. 1B Bobby Dalbec
