  • While batting in the top of the ninth inning on Sunday, Lewis Brinson was berated twice with the n-word. The Rockies are investigating the incident.
  • Sunday’s minor league scores: Triple-A Jacksonville won, 6-4, and 5-0 (doubleheader); Double-A Pensacola lost, 5-2; High-A Beloit lost, 15-13. Spoiler alert: Peyton Burdick will win Double-A South Player of the Week honors for his incredible performance against Biloxi.

  • FiveThirtyEight gives the Marlins a miniscule 33% chance to win their series opener against the Padres.
  • It’s unclear whether Jorge Alfaro (short of breath) and Jazz Chisholm Jr. (flu-like symptoms) will be available to play.
