RHP Ryan Feltner
Notes: Feltner picked up the first win—and to this point, the only win—of his big league career against these Marlins at Coors Field three weeks ago…The Rockies are among MLB’s worst hitting teams on the road with a collective 76 wRC+ away from Coors Field, homering only 15 times in 29 games… They have received very little from big free-agent signing Kris Bryant. He’s been sidelined for the last month by a strained lower back. Bryant begins a minor league rehab assignment today, but isn’t expected to be activated during this series.
Marlins Game Notes
Monday’s Marlins Starting Lineup (to be updated ASAP)
- 3B Jon Berti (126 wRC+ this season, career 101 wRC+)
- 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr. (131, 104)
- DH Jorge Soler (113, 111)
- 1B Garrett Cooper (140, 123)
- SS Miguel Rojas (85, 87)

LHP Daniel Castano
Lineup Changes from Previous Game: TBD
Additional Notes: The long-term absence of Payton Henry following right thumb surgery further strengthens Fortes’ job security, even assuming that his offensive stats regress from their currently absurd levels…Berti is tied for the MLB lead with 18 stolen bases this season. That’s despite being used as a part-time player in April and missing the majority of May due to COVID.
