Welcome to Wednesday’s Marlins (19-27, +4 RD) vs. Rockies (22-26, -37 RD) doubleheader game thread. Happy Edward Cabrera Day! My fourth-ranked Marlins prospect is back in The Show.
This is the first doubleheader that the Marlins have played this season and their first traditional 18-inning day since 2019.

Marlins Game Notes
Marlins Game 1 Starting Lineup
- 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr. (147 wRC+ this season, career 104 wRC+)
- 1B Garrett Cooper (124, 119)
- DH Jorge Soler (122, 112)
- RF Avisaíl García (53, 102)
- CF Jesús Sánchez (88, 97)
- SS Jon Berti (144, 100)
- LF Bryan De La Cruz
- C Nick Fortes
- 3B Luke Williams
RHP Edward Cabrera
Pregame Roster Moves: Brian Anderson and Joey Wendle placed on 10-day injured list, Edward Cabrera and Luke Williams recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville, Zach Pop designated as 27th man
Additional Notes: Cabrera stretched out to 102 pitches with Triple-A Jacksonville a couple starts ago. No reason why the Marlins would have him on a strict pitch count if he’s effective tonight. The Dominican right-hander has added a sinker to his pre-existing repertoire...Aguilar’s next home run will be the 100th of his MLB career.
Rockies Game 1 Starting Lineup
- DH Charlie Blackmon (95 wRC+ this season, career 113 wRC+)
- CF Yonathan Daza (123, 74)
- 1B C.J. Cron (147, 115)
- 3B Ryan McMahon (96, 88)
- RF Connor Joe (103, 104)
- 2B Brendan Rodgers (73, 80)
- LF Sam Hilliard (57, 86)
- SS José Iglesias (104, 88)
- C Elias Díaz (49, 77)
Notes: Last winter, Senzatela signed a comparable contract extension to Sandy Alcantara. I suspect that the Marlins are more satisfied with their investment. Senzatela has posted MLB’s lowest strikeout rate in 2022 (min. 100 batters faced)...Hard to believe for a team that plays home games at Coors, but Cron (13) and Blackmon (7) are the only Rockies on pace for 20-homer seasons.
