Is there a "Cinderella" run in the Miami Marlins this season? Might be tough after those losses to the San Diego Padres however.... The Fish's division rivals have been hit with some injuries and there's more to come sadly. Are you ready to get into some hot streaks, cold streaks and injuries?

There are some interesting notes on Miami Marlins and division rival players.

Let's begin with some bad news... after the Atlanta Braves lost RF Ronald Acuna Jr. for the season, the New York Mets now lost SS Francisco Lindor for at least a day or two for a swollen finger. You can argue that Lindor is having a down season (by his standards). He's currently batting .210/.277/.374, with 8 home runs and 26 RBI in 54 games and 219 AB. He does have a low .224 BABIP, when his career mark is .289. His Exit Velocity went down from 91.2 last season to 89.6 this season. Hopefully he'll be fine in a few days. I can't wish for him to play better, but I do wish for him to be healthy.

Miami Marlins second baseman Otto Lopez is sadly on a cold streak. He's been batting .216 with no home runs and 8 RBI over the last two weeks. He has a .125 batting average with no home runs and 2 RBI so far this week. I'm really hoping that he turns things around, but with no track record it's more of a wishful thinking type of situation. Lopez is however batting .260/.295/.425 this season overall.

On the flip side, Miami Marlins CF Jazz Chisholm Jr. is batting .292 with 3 home runs and 6 RBI, with 2 stolen bases over the last two weeks. He's also batting .304 with 2 home runs and 3 RBI over the last week, with a stolen base. He's clearly being revitalized as The Fish's new lead-off hitter. I'm hoping that this will continue and that more importantly he will stay healthy.

The final player that I wanted to cover is Marlins DH Bryan De La Cruz. The break-out hitter is only batting .244 with a home run and 3 RBI over the last two weeks. He's batting a worse .174 this week so far. Let's hope that he turns things around soon.
