Welcome to Saturday’s Marlins (14-18, +8 RD) vs. Brewers (21-12, +30 RD) game thread. The 25th anniversary celebration of the 1997 World Series title-winning team continues.
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.
Brewers Starting Lineup
- 2B Luis Urías (165 wRC+ this season, career 99 wRC+)
- SS Willy Adames (122, 112)
- DH Christian Yelich (136, 132)
- RF Hunter Renfroe (110, 106)
- LF Tyrone Taylor (83, 105)
- 1B Rowdy Tellez (132, 104)
- CF Lorenzo Cain (43, 105)
- 3B Mike Brosseau (157, 110)
- C Victor Caratini (112, 83)
LHP Eric Lauer
Notes: Lauer has pitched just as well as Corbin Burnes so far this season. His strikeout rate has exploded with the aid of extra fastball velocity...Adames owns a meager .164/.220/.273 slash line in 17 career games against the Marlins. Weird...Josh Hader is in the midst of an immense scoreless streak that dates back to July 2021.
Marlins Game Notes
Marlins Starting Lineup
- 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr. (154 wRC+ this season, career 104 wRC+)
- DH Jesús Aguilar (117, 113)
- LF Jorge Soler (81, 110)
- 1B Garrett Cooper (124, 119)
- RF Avisaíl García (55, 102)
- CF Jesús Sánchez (85, 98)
- 3B Brian Anderson (133, 112)
- SS Miguel Rojas (46, 86)
- C Jacob Stallings (59, 87)
LHP Trevor Rogers
Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Sánchez moves up from 7 to 6, Anderson moves down from 6 to 7; Aguilar and Cooper swap 1B/DH
Pregame Transactions: RHP Josh Roberson traded to Rays
Additional Notes: It’s only the second time this season that Chisholm has occupied the leadoff spot against an opposing lefty. He also did it last Saturday when facing Sean Manaea in San Diego (the Marlins won, 8-0)...Aguilar has been dramatically more productive with the bat at home this season (188 wRC+) compared to on the road (61 wRC+)...If you are attending the game and find yourself with an extra replica World Series ring, consider negotiating a deal with Sean Millerick.
