Welcome to Sunday’s Marlins (22-29, +12 RD) vs. Giants (28-24, +26 RD) game thread.

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.

  1. CF Austin Slater (125, 103)
  2. 1B Wilmer Flores (110, 105)

Notes: Junis is the only MLB starting pitcher whose slider accounts for the majority of his total pitches...González (right leg bruise) has recovered from Friday’s hit by pitch...Estrada and Vosler are the only players who have started all four games of this series for the Giants.

Marlins Game Notes

Marlins Starting Lineup

  1. 2B Jon Berti (152 wRC+ this season, career 102 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. SS Miguel Rojas (83, 87)
  8. C Jacob Stallings (69, 87)
  9. 3B Luke Williams (126, 82)

LHP Braxton Garrett

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Williams in, Jazz Chisholm Jr. out; Berti switches from 3B to 2B, Cooper and Aguilar swap 1B/DH

Pregame Roster Moves: Braxton Garrett recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville

Additional Notes: Garrett graduates as the 27th-ranked player on my Marlins Top 30 prospects list. He’s been using a four-seam fastball/sinker (two-seamer)/slider/curveball/changeup pitch mix this season, just like he did in previous MLB stints. On Saturday, Garrett told Fish Stripes’ own Kevin Barral that he’s been focusing on locating his stuff outside the zone in two-strike situations...Chisholm has slumped since returning from his minor hamstring injury (.077/.172/.192, 12 wRC+ in 29 PA)...Aguilar’s next homer will be the 100th of his MLB career.
