Welcome to Sunday’s Marlins (15-18, +14 RD) vs. Brewers (21-13, +24 RD) game thread. The 25th anniversary celebration of the 1997 World Series title-winning team continues with an alumni softball game.

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

  1. 2B Kolten Wong (96 wRC+ this season, career 98 wRC+)
  2. SS Willy Adames (122, 112)
  3. LF Christian Yelich (136, 132)
  4. 3B Luis Urías (165, 99)

Notes: After ranking in the 90th percentile last season in hard hit rate, Woodruff has plummeted to the 20th percentile. Most of his issues have come in road games (12.00 ERA in 12.0 IP)...Josh Hader is in the midst of an immense scoreless streak that dates back to July 2021.

RHP Elieser Hernandez

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: De La Cruz, González and Henry in, Garrett Cooper, Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Jacob Stallings out; Sánchez moves up from 6 to 1, Anderson moves up from 7 to 5, Rojas moves up from 8 to 6; Aguilar switches from DH to 1B, García switches from RF to DH

Pregame Transactions: Jesús Luzardo (left forearm strain) placed on 15-day injured list, Lewin Díaz recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville

Additional Notes: The Marlins nearly made it seven full turns through their starting rotation without any injuries. Fingers crossed that Luzardo’s forearm strain isn’t the precursor to something more significant. Poteet will start in his place on Monday...Díaz is on the Marlins active roster for the first time this season. He could be going back down to Jacksonville in the next few days if Cooper (left knee contusion) avoids the IL...Aguilar has been dramatically more productive with the bat at home this season (202 wRC+) compared to on the road (61 wRC+).
