Welcome to Friday’s Marlins (12-13, +2 RD) vs. Padres (17-9, +21 RD) game thread. Entering tonight, only the woeful Reds and Athletics have longer active losing streaks than Miami does.

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

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Berti and Stallings in, Payton Henry and Jorge Soler out; Cooper moves up from 4 to 3, Wendle moves up from 7 to 4, Sánchez moves down from 4 to 7; Aguilar and Cooper swap 1B/DH

Additional Notes: Brian Anderson placed on injured list (no injury designation), Bryan De La Cruz recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville

Additional Notes: The Marlins choose to keep COVID-related issues confidential (policy varies from team to team). We can’t 100% confirm what’s going on with Anderson, but the vagueness of his situation would suggest that he is sidelined due to either symptoms or a positive test...Aguilar is riding a 19-game on-base streak and his .374 OBP overall is on pace to be a career high...I don’t understand the Marlins’ handling of Stallings, refusing to give him full games off when he’s already performing below expectations. This will be his 25th appearance, tied with Sean Murphy for the heaviest workload among MLB catchers.

Padres Starting Lineup

  1. DH Jake Cronenworth (96 wRC+ this season, career 116 wRC+)
  2. SS Ha-Seong Kim (147, 87)
  3. 3B Manny Machado (215, 122)
  4. 1B Eric Hosmer (194, 108)
  5. LF Jurickson Profar (111, 90)
  6. C Austin Nola (71, 109)
  7. CF Trent Grisham (62, 102)
  8. RF Matt Beaty (-5, 97)
  9. 2B C.J. Abrams (69, 69)

Notes: Manager Bob Melvin missed Thursday’s game with a non-COVID illness, so bench coach Ryan Christenson filled in...With All-Star closer Taylor Rogers pitching full innings each of the previous two days, perhaps the Marlins catch a break and the Padres choose to rest him (regardless of whether there is a save situation). Rogers has tossed 11 23 scoreless innings this season.
