Yankees Starting Lineup
- SS Gleyber Torres
- RF Joey Gallo
- CF Aaron Judge
- 1B Anthony Rizzo
- LF Giancarlo Stanton
- 2B Rougned Odor
- C Gary Sánchez
- 3B Tyler Wade
- RHP Jameson Taillon (2021 season stats: 4.36 ERA, 4.46 FIP, 23.1 K%, 40.9 HardHit% in 95.0 IP)
Notes: Newly acquired Joey Gallo will be making his Yankees debut. Despite the immense starpower on their roster, the “Bronx Bombers” are merely a league average offense (100 wRC+) so far in 2021. Anthony Rizzo has been activated as well...As is the case during every National League home game, the designated hitter rule is not in effect. That adversely affects old friend Giancarlo Stanton—he’s been used exclusively as a DH since the end of 2019.
Marlins Starting Lineup
- CF Magneuris Sierra
- SS Miguel Rojas
- 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr.
- 1B Jesús Aguilar
- 3B Brian Anderson
- C Jorge Alfaro
- RF Bryan De La Cruz
- LF Brian Miller
- RHP Zach Thompson (2021 season stats: 2.45 ERA, 2.85 FIP, 26.7 K%, 40.2 HardHit% in 33.0 IP)
Notes: Miami’s leading home run hitter, Adam Duvall, has been shipped to the Braves. We will witness the major league debuts of Bryan De La Cruz and Brian Miller as reinforcements for the ultra-thin Marlins outfield. John Curtiss was dealt to the Brewers in a one-for-one with catching prospect Payton Henry...After spending the minimum 10 days on the injured list with a shoulder contusion, Jazz Chisholm Jr. is available to play.
