The Marlins are, understandably, being overshadowed by the Miami Heat and Florida Panthers playoff series and the upcoming Miami Grand Prix.

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.


Diamondbacks Starting Lineup

  1. LF Cooper Hummel (94 wRC+ this season, career 109 wRC+)
  2. DH Jordan Luplow (140, 110)
  3. 2B Ketel Marte (42, 109)
  4. 1B Christian Walker (78, 99)
  5. C Carson Kelly (-14, 83)
  6. CF Daulton Varsho (119, 97)
  7. SS Nick Ahmed (185, 75)

Notes: With an average four-seam fastball velocity of just 88.8 mph, Castellanos is one of the softest throwers in the majors, per Baseball Savant...The D-backs are sorta running on fumes at this point, having played 15 games over the last 14 days (with zero off days). Their .181 team batting average is 16 points lower than any other MLB team.

Marlins Game Notes

Marlins Starting Lineup

  1. 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr. (187 wRC+ this season, career 103 wRC+)
  2. DH Jesús Aguilar (103, 112)
  3. LF Jorge Soler (87, 110)
  4. CF Jesús Sánchez (137, 110)
  5. 1B Garrett Cooper (141, 120)
  6. RF Avisaíl García (46, 103)
  7. 3B Brian Anderson (142, 113)
  8. SS Jon Berti (208, 102)
  9. C Jacob Stallings (39, 87)

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Berti in, Miguel Rojas out; Cooper/García swap the 5/6 spots; Cooper/Aguilar swap 1B/DH

Additional Notes: Joey Wendle is still dealing with soreness that kept him out on Monday...Richard Bleier has allowed at least one hit in six straight appearances, matching the longest such streak of his Marlins tenure. He should not be given high-leverage assignments for the time being...If García can’t straighten himself out over the next two games against a pitch-to-contact righty and a lefty (Madison Bumgarner), it may be time to worry.
