Welcome to Sunday’s Marlins (13-14, +9 RD) vs. Padres (18-10, +14 RD) game thread. Happy Mother’s Day!
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.
Marlins Game Notes
Marlins Starting Lineup
- 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr. (193 wRC+ this season, career 106 wRC+)
- 1B Jesús Aguilar (126, 113)
- LF Jorge Soler (77, 110)
- 3B Joey Wendle (124, 104)
- DH Garrett Cooper (120, 119)
- RF Bryan De La Cruz (167, 121)
- CF Jesús Sánchez (115, 105)
- SS Miguel Rojas (40, 86)
- C Payton Henry (16, 43)
LHP Trevor Rogers
Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Henry, Sánchez and Wendle in, Joe Dunand, Avisaíl García and Jacob Stallings out; Soler moves up from 4 to 3, Cooper moves down from 3 to 5, Rojas moves down from 6 to 8; De La Cruz switches from CF to RF, Aguilar and Cooper swap 1B/DH
Additional Notes: Things change quickly, huh? De La Cruz, who the Marlins briefly sent down to Triple-A, is hitting a spot above the not-so-hot-anymore Sánchez against a right-handed pitcher...The Marlins bullpen has gotten some much needed rest during this series. Cole Sulser hasn’t even been used yet and the others should all be available to pitch today.
Padres Starting Lineup
- 2B Jake Cronenworth (92 wRC+ this season, career 116 wRC+)
- SS Ha-Seong Kim (127, 87)
- 3B Manny Machado (217, 122)
- 1B Eric Hosmer (179, 108)
- C Austin Nola (63, 108)
- DH Jurickson Profar (109, 90)
- CF Trent Grisham (68, 102)
- RF Trayce Thompson (6, 83)
- LF José Azocar (102, 102)
RHP Joe Musgrove
Notes: Musgrove has issued only two walks this season...In the injury absence of Luke Voit, the Padres have had a revolving door at the DH spot. They’ve put a different player there in each game of this series.
