Welcome to Wednesday’s Marlins (28-32, +23 RD) vs. Phillies (31-31, +27 RD) game thread. Can the Marlins win their third consecutive series?

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 third inning runs from June 10 through June 29.


Marlins Game Notes

Marlins Starting Lineup

  1. 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr. (135 wRC+ this season, career 105 wRC+)
  2. 3B Jon Berti (134, 102)
  3. DH Jorge Soler (116, 112)
  4. 1B Jesús Aguilar (106, 112)
  5. CF Jesús Sánchez (99, 103)

  7. SS Miguel Rojas (80, 87)

LHP Daniel Castano

Pregame Roster Moves: Daniel Castano recalled and Jimmy Yacabonis selected from Triple-A Jacksonville; Edward Cabrera (right elbow tendinitis) and Cole Sulser (right lat strain) placed on 15-day injured list; Jesús Luzardo transferred to 60-day IL

Additional Notes: This was originally Pablo López’s spot in the rotation, but he’s still dealing with lingering effects of the right wrist contusion he suffered last Friday. Castano has made three previous appearances with the big league club in 2022. This will be his first start. With Triple-A Jacksonville, he owns a 4.82 ERA, 5.85 FIP and .266 BAA in 28.0 IP...The Marlins have eight home runs this season in what Baseball-Reference considers “late-and-close” situations; Chisholm has hit four of them.

Phillies Starting Lineup

  1. LF Kyle Schwarber (122, 119)
  2. 1B Rhys Hoskins (125, 126)
  3. DH Bryce Harper (168, 143)
  4. RF Nick Castellanos (101, 114)
  5. SS Didi Gregorius (127, 96)
  6. 3B Alec Bohm (78, 89)
  7. CF Odúbel Herrera (123, 101)
  8. 2B Bryson Stott (56, 56)
  9. C Garrett Stubbs (166, 73)

RHP Kyle Gibson

Notes: García (.472 OPS in 34 plate appearances) and Soler (.914 OPS in 22 PA) have the most head-to-head history with Gibson among active Marlins players...After his struggles on Tuesday, Corey Knebel has been bumped out of the closer’s role.
