Welcome to Monday’s Marlins (24-23, -54 RD) vs. Rockies (19-28, -46 RD) game thread.
It’s the opening of a new Marlins series, which means we’re doing an hour-long livestream with the Fish Stripes staff and special guests.
Marlins Game Notes
Marlins Starting Lineup
- LF Jon Berti (87 wRC+ this season, bats right)

Additional Marlins Notes: Last time Cabrera pitched at Coors, he threw his record-setting 96 mile-per-hour changeup and carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning...There’s no immediate impact of the Jonathan Davis trade on Miami’s major league roster, but solid chance he makes his way up at some point this season...Cooper is coming off his worst series of the year (0-for-11, 1 BB).
Rockies Starting Lineup
- DH Charlie Blackmon (104 wRC+ this season, bats left)
- LF Jurickson Profar (87, S)
- RF Kris Bryant (103, R)
- C Elias Díaz (115, R)
- 3B Ryan McMahon (74, L)
- 2B Harold Castro (68, L)
- CF Brenton Doyle (103, R)
- 1B Michael Toglia (16, S)
- SS Ezequiel Tovar (48, R)
RHP Chase Anderson (career 100 ERA+)
Rockies Notes: Remember to recalibrate your expectations for the high altitude—there’s been an average of 11.45 runs scored per game at Coors Field this season...Anderson hasn’t yielded a run in 10 total innings pitched for the Rays and Rockies. He has historically had big reverse platoon splits (.824 OPS vs. RHB, .682 OPS vs. LHB).
