Notes: This was originally supposed to be Justin Verlander’s start day before he landed on the injured list with a minor shoulder strain.
Megill has one previous start against the Marlins, came back in 2021. Allowed 5 Runs and took the loss that particular day. Here's the lineup he faced:— Danny M. (@DM__MIA) April 1, 2023
J. Chisholm Jr.
B. De La Cruz
A bit different today.
