4. Miami Marlins Finish Top 5 in Team ERA
The Marlins enter Wednesday’s game at loanDepot Park against the Mets ranked tied-fourth in all of baseball in Team ERA at 3.53.
Miami’s young starting rotation has been dominant for the entire season headlined by the big three of Sandy Alcantara, Trevor Rogers, and Pablo Lopez, as well as the emergence of fairly unknown names coming into the season such as Zach Thompson and more.
The Marlins bullpen has played a big role in this as well with the impressive seasons from relievers such as Anthony Bender, Dylan Floro, and Richard Bleier. Miami’s bullpen has been one of the best in baseball at times this season, and hasn’t necessarily showed any signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Looking ahead, the Marlins will most-likely see some potential extensive time from a few of their young players including top prospects Edward Cabrera and potentially Max Meyer and Jake Eder. Newly acquired southpaw Jesus Luzardo should also feature a prominent role in the Marlins rotation going forward as well, and if his debut from Monday night is anything to go-off, the left-hander will be an impact starter for Miami going forward.
The Marlins pitching staff as a whole has been phenomenal this season, and could receive some boosts to the rotation in the near future as well. Currently ranked among the Top 5 in baseball in team ERA, this pitching staff certainly appears to have a great shot to finish the 2021 season among the best in the game.
