Braves Lineup

  1. RF Ronald Acuña Jr.
  2. 1B Freddie Freeman
  3. 2B Ozzie Albies
  4. 3B Austin Riley
  5. LF Orlando Arcia
  6. SS Dansby Swanson
  7. CF Guillermo Heredia
  8. C Jonathan Lucroy
  9. LHP Max Fried (2021 season stats: 4.66 ERA, 4.02 FIP, 23.0 K%, 32.3 HardHit% in 67.2 IP)
Max Fried - 2021 Frequency of Pitches by Pitch Speed Baseball Savant

Notes: The inconsistent Braves offense has been limited to four runs or fewer in 16 of their last 20 games. Friday’s series opener was one of the rare exceptions...The journeyman Abraham Almonte is the ultra-rare type of player in today’s MLB who has more walks (23) than strikeouts (22) this season.

Marlins Lineup

  1. SS Miguel Rojas
  2. 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr.
  3. RF Garrett Cooper
  4. LF Adam Duvall
  5. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  6. 3B Jon Berti
  7. C Jorge Alfaro
  8. CF Magneuris Sierra
  9. LHP Trevor Rogers (2021 season stats: 2.22 ERA, 2.50 FIP, 30.3 K%, 36.6 HardHit% in 97.1 IP)
Trevor Rogers - 2021 Frequency of Pitches by Pitch Speed Baseball Savant

Notes: Starling Marte was scratched within an hour of first pitch due to personal reasons. He doesn’t have any extra-base hits since June 23...Rogers can lower his career ERA below 3.00, either with four-plus innings and zero earned runs allowed or seven-plus innings of one-run ball...The well-rested players available in the Marlins bullpen (haven’t pitched in at least two days and were most recently used in short relief) are Richard Bleier, Dylan Floro and Yimi García. Also, Zach Thompson is fully stretched out—it’s just a question of whether he has recuperated from a minor illness...Why was Jazz moved out of the leadoff spot? We addressed this exact topic on the latest Fish Stripes Live!
