Welcome to Saturday’s Marlins (11-8, +8 RD) vs. Mariners (11-9, +18 RD) game thread. It’s University of Miami Night at LoanDepot Park.

Our free Marlins prop bets contest has returned...with a few tweaks.

Use this Fish Picks link prior to every Marlins series to submit your predictions. I have divided the Marlins schedule into nine separate “innings” and will be awarding a BreakingT t-shirt to each inning’s points leader. The second inning runs from April 29 through May 18.

Pregame Transactions: Mike Ford traded to the Giants for cash considerations

Notes: Mitch Haniger (high right ankle sprain) is doubtful to play in the remainder of this series, but we’re still waiting for official word on that...Legendary infield instructor Perry Hill, who parted ways with the Fish after the 2018 season, is on Seattle’s coaching staff.

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Berti, Cooper, De La Cruz and Henry in, Jazz Chisholm Jr., Jesús Sánchez, Jacob Stallings and Joey Wendle out; Rojas moves up from 8 to 7; Soler switches from DH to LF, Anderson switches from LF to 3B

Additional Notes: Once again, the Marlins are going with an all-right-handed lineup against a left-handed starter, even though it means benching some of their best overall players...Since taking the loss on Opening Day, the much-maligned Anthony Bass has been legitimately great, allowing only four baserunners in 9 13 innings pitched and stranding all five of his inherited runners.
