Marlins Lineup

  1. SS Jon Berti
  2. 2B Isan Díaz
  3. RF Brian Anderson
  4. 1B Garrett Cooper
  5. 3B Starlin Castro
  6. LF Harold Ramirez
  7. C Jorge Alfaro
  8. CF Lewis Brinson
  9. P Jordan Yamamoto (4.17 ERA, 4.18 FIP, 25.1 K%, 40.4 Hard Hit% in 54.0 IP)

Notes: After having made it through six career starts without surrendering a home run, Yamamoto has served up six of them in his last four (at least one each outing). That will obviously be a big factor in how the Marlins do in this game…The transition to third base has rejuvenated Castro’s bat—he’s slashing .500/.500/.731 with only two strikeouts through 26 plate appearances at that position…In case you missed it during the off day, the Marlins released their 2020 regular season schedule.

He’s not a Miami Marlin yet, but infielder Eddy Alvarez is poised for a September call-up after thriving the past several months at Triple-A New Orleans. Andre Fernandez of The Athletic tells the unique backstory of how the South Florida native overcame severe knee issues to become an Olympic medalist—as a speed skater!—and find success in baseball after years away from the sport (subscription required).
