2. Starling Marte – CF

2021 Season Stats: .333 AVG, .432 OBP, .538 SLG, .970 OPS, 5 HR, 15 RBI, 8 SB

Other Potential Lineup Options: Anywhere from 1-3

As we’ve seen in previous weeks, Starling Marte is becoming the perfect 2-hole hitter behind Chisholm. The 32-year old outfielder is having a career-year across the board, in particular a by-far career-high .432 OBP. It is clearly working with Marte hitting second in the Marlins everyday lineup, why change that now?

3. Jesus Aguilar – 1B

2021 Season Stats: .273 AVG, .333 OBP, .485 SLG, .818 OPS, 12 HR, 49 RBI

Other Potential Lineup Options: Anywhere from 2-4

The team leader in almost every major statistical category offensively, Jesus Aguilar you could make a case is the Marlins offensive MVP up to this point in the season. Aguilar leads the entire NL in RBI’s with 49 making him a prime candidate to remain in the No. 3 spot in this lineup. When looking up and down the Marlins lineup, Aguilar hitting third might be the easiest decision to make.
