Welcome to Tuesday’s Marlins (27-32, +22 RD) vs. Phillies (30-31, +27 RD) game thread. The Marlins look to rebound from a devastating one-run loss, their MLB-leading 16th of the season.
Our free Marlins prop bets contest has returned...with a few tweaks.

LHP Trevor Rogers
Lineup Changes from Previous Game: García in, Bryan De La Cruz out
Additional Notes: Daniel Hirsch preaches patience with the Marlins (I respectfully disagree)...After making positive strides in the batter’s box during most of May, Jacob Stallings is slumping again. Over his last 11 games, he’s slashing .105/.150/.105 with 15 strikeouts in 40 plate appearances. Rogers has struggled (even more than usual) in his eight starts throwing to Stallings, allowing eight home runs with a 7.41 earned run average in those 34 innings.
Phillies Starting Lineup
- LF Kyle Schwarber (122, 119)
- 1B Rhys Hoskins (111, 125)
- DH Bryce Harper (168, 143)
- RF Nick Castellanos (101, 114)
- C J.T. Realmuto (97, 108)
- SS Didi Gregorius (127, 96)
- 3B Alec Bohm (76, 89)
- 2B Yairo Muñoz (N/A, 94)
- CF Matt Vierling (60, 94)

Notes: The Phillies were blown out by the Diamondbacks on Sunday, but have won all of their other games since firing Joe Girardi as manager. That hot stretch coincides pretty well with Gregorius’ return from a knee sprain—he owns a .375/.423/.625 slash line in June...Harper’s last time playing a defensive position was April 16 against the Marlins. Since then, he’s been limited to designated hitter duties due to a partially torn UCL. Harper is raking just as much as he did during his 2021 NL MVP campaign, but the rest of Philly’s defense has suffered without him...The Phils currently have a “closer by committee” setup while Corey Knebel deals with right shoulder tightness.
