Welcome to Friday’s Marlins (21-28, +19 RD) vs. Giants (27-23, +18 RD) game thread.

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

Pregame Roster Moves: RHP Sean Hjelle recalled from Triple-A, LHP Sam Long optioned to Triple-A

Notes: Alex Cobb (back tightness) has been scratched from his scheduled start, setting up one of the few true bullpen games that the Marlins have faced all season. Brebbia, who’s in his fifth big league campaign, has never been used as a starter before. His longest outing of the year was two innings (April 25 vs. Brewers)...Even casual MLB fans are probably aware of how hot Pederson has been at the plate. His 260 wRC+ over the last two weeks is fourth-highest among all MLB qualifiers during that span...Joey Bart owns a league-worst 44.8% strikeout rate (min. 100 PA), which is beginning to eat into his playing time.

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Cooper, Fortes and Sánchez in, Bryan De La Cruz, Jacob Stallings and Luke Williams out; Chisholm moves up from 2 to 1, Berti moves down from 1 to 7; Soler switches from DH to LF

Additional Notes: Elieser Hernandez is going to be the bulk guy, presumably coming into the game right after Bleier...Aguilar’s next home run will be the 100th of his MLB career.
