Marlins Lineup

Lineup Player Current wOBA Proj. wOBA (Rest of Season)
1 Christian Yelich .347 .318
2 Adeiny Hechavarria .228 .293
3 Ed Lucas .283 .286
4 Logan Morrison .352 .346
5 Placido Polanco .278 .284
6 Justin Ruggiano .282 .309

8 Jeff Mathis

Giancarlo Stanton gets the day off, likely to allow him to clear his head a bit. He has been slumping as of late and the Marlins desperately need his bat to get going. Without Stanton, this lineup could definitely contend for the worst lineup in major league history.

Bold Prediction: Nathan Eovladi gives the Marlins six strong innings, allowing only two earned runs. The Marlins defense however fails him and the offense cannot figure out Alex Wood. Braves  win 5-0!
