Welcome to Saturday’s Marlins (21-29, +10 RD) vs. Giants (28-23, +27 RD) game thread. The last game was an unofficial breaking point for me, dashing any slim hope that these Fish could earn a 2022 postseason berth. Still 112 games to go, though!

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 May 20 through June 9.

Notes: Since 2021, Webb has been as good as anybody in terms of suppressing home runs, except for in his start on Monday, when the Phillies took him deep three times...Luis González (right leg bruise) departed Friday’s game early after a hit by pitch. He’s considered day-to-day...Even casual MLB fans are probably aware of how hot Pederson has been at the plate. His 266 wRC+ over the last two weeks is third-highest among all MLB qualifiers during that span...Bart owns a league-worst 44.8% strikeout rate (min. 100 PA), which is beginning to eat into his playing time.

Marlins Game Notes

Marlins Starting Lineup

  1. 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr. (147 wRC+ this season, career 105 wRC+)
  2. DH Garrett Cooper (128, 120)
  3. LF Jorge Soler (123, 112)
  4. 1B Jesús Aguilar (109, 112)
  5. RF Avisaíl García (58, 102)
  6. CF Jesús Sánchez (102, 102)
  7. 3B Jon Berti (149, 102)
  8. SS Miguel Rojas (83, 87)
  9. C Jacob Stallings (69, 87)

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Stallings in, Nick Fortes out

Pregame Roster Moves: Elieser Hernandez optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville

Additional Notes: López would need to pitch at least 7 13 scoreless innings today to reclaim the National League ERA lead from Joe Musgrove...I’m not sure what to make of Sánchez right now. He has emerged from an extended slump with three home runs this week, but each of them came with caveats (two at Coors Field and one against a position player)...Aguilar’s next homer will be the 100th of his MLB career. He just missed getting it on Friday.
