Saturday’s Padres Starting Lineup (today’s lineup coming soon)
- LF Tommy Pham
- SS Fernando Tatís Jr.
- CF Trent Grisham
- 3B Manny Machado
- RF Wil Myers
- 1B Jurickson Profar
- C Austin Nola
- 2B Ha-Seong Kim
RHP Yu Darvish (2021 season stats: 3.09 ERA, 3.41 FIP, 28.9 K%, 33.5 HardHit% in 110.2 IP)
Notes: Darvish took the loss in Game 2 of the 2020 NL Wild Card Series. Garrett Cooper took him deep for the go-ahead home run, though he remains on the injured list with an elbow sprain and won’t have an impact today…The NL Cy Young award runner-up has a deeper pitch mix than anybody the Marlins have faced this season.
Saturday’s Marlins Starting Lineup (today’s lineup coming soon)
- SS Miguel Rojas
- CF Starling Marte
- 1B Jesús Aguilar
- RF Adam Duvall
- 3B Brian Anderson
- C Jorge Alfaro
- LF Lewis Brinson
- 2B Isan Díaz
Notes: The Marlins have used 19 different pitchers since the All-Star break…Brian Anderson (left shoulder subluxation) went 1-for-4 in his return from the injured list. The Marlins are a respectable 17-17 this season with him in the starting lineup. However, they’re 1-6 in their last seven Sunday games…The most well-rested options in the Marlins bullpen are Anthony Bass, Anthony Bender, Richard Bleier, John Curtiss, Ross Detwiler, David Hess, Luis Madero and Zach Pop.
