Welcome to Wednesday’s Marlins (16-14, -41 RD) vs. Braves (20-10, +48 RD) game thread. Peyton Burdick is here!
Braves Starting Lineup
- RF Ronald Acuña Jr. (177 wRC+ this season)
- 1B Matt Olson (143)
- 3B Austin Riley (103)
- C Sean Murphy (179)
- 2B Ozzie Albies (111)
- SS Vaughn Grissom (77)
- DH Marcell Ozuna (25)
- LF Kevin Pillar (76)
- CF Michael Harris II (55)
RHP Kyle Wright (93 ERA+ this season)
Braves Notes: Acuña was just voted the NL Player of the Month for April. He had a two-strikeout game on Tuesday, but that’s an anomaly—Acuña’s 14.7 K% so far this season is on pace to be far and away the best of his career...Riley (.444 OPS in 9 PA) has the most head-to-head history with Garrett among available Braves players.
Marlins Game Notes
Marlins Starting Lineup
- CF Jazz Chisholm Jr (91 wRC+ this season)
- DH Jorge Soler (100)
- 1B Yuli Gurriel (122)
- 2B Luis Arraez (185)
- LF Jesús Sánchez (91)
- 3B Jean Segura (28)
- RF Garrett Hampson (112)
- C Nick Fortes (53)
- SS Jon Berti (89)
LHP Braxton Garrett (179 ERA+ this season)
Pregame Roster Moves: OF Peyton Burdick recalled and LHP Devin Smeltzer selected from Triple-A Jacksonville; 1B Garrett Cooper (inner ear infection) placed on 10-day IL; RHP Johan Quezada designated for assignment
Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Fortes and Hampson in, Bryan De La Cruz and Jacob Stallings out; Sánchez switches from RF to LF
Additional Marlins Notes: Cooper’s ailment was originally described as an upset stomach when he exited Sunday’s game early. He’s no stranger to the injured list, unfortunately. Presumably, Arraez is now the Marlins’ backup first baseman...Braxton Garrett was limited to just 48 pitches on Thursday when his scoreless start was interrupted by rain. He hasn’t thrown more than 85 pitches in any appearance this season.
