Domingo Germán - 2021 Frequency of Pitches by Pitch Speed Baseball Savant

Notes: Identical lineup to the one they used in the series opener...This will be Germán’s first time facing his organizational organization—the Marlins signed him as an international free agent in August 2009...Giancarlo Stanton started in left field on Friday, but was removed in the sixth inning as part of a double switch. Prior to that, he’d been used exclusively as a DH since the end of the 2019 season.

Marlins Starting Lineup

  1. 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr.
  2. SS Miguel Rojas
  3. 3B Brian Anderson
  4. 1B Lewin Díaz
  5. C Jorge Alfaro
  6. RF Bryan De La Cruz
  7. LF Lewis Brinson
  8. CF Magneuris Sierra
  9. LHP Trevor Rogers (2021 season stats: 2.37 ERA, 2.55 FIP, 29.1 K%, 37.1 HardHit% in 106.1 IP)

Notes: Don Mattingly tested positive for COVID-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms. James Rowson will serve as interim manager for the rest of the series...The Marlins placed Rogers on the 10-day IL with back spasms on July 24, but the move must have been retroactive to July 21. That is why he is eligible to return tonight....Brian Anderson has a five-game hitting streak since returning from the injured list. He’s got a .368/.478/.684 slash line during that span...The most well-rested relievers available in the Marlins bullpen are Anthony Bass, Dylan Floro, Preston Guilmet. David Hess and Steven Okert.
