Miami Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves Prediction

Elieser Hernandez will take the mound for the Marlins. Lately, Hernandez has been an automatic fade with a 6.15 ERA to start the season. Hernandez has allowed 10 earned runs and 14 runs in his last 13.1 innings pitched. In May, he has a 6.75 ERA with just 10 strikeouts, seven walks, and four home runs. Of course, the Marlins have lost each of his last three starts as he's allowed at least four runs in each of those three games. In the last 30 days, Hernandez has had a 6.41 xFIP with 17.6% strikeouts. He's also giving up nearly 40% of hard contact while lefties hit a wOBA of .393 with an ISO of .375 against the right-hander in that time frame. Righties also have a .343 wOBA and ISO of .226 in the last 30 days against Hernandez. The Braves aren't the most consistent offense but any offense facing Hernandez is seeing results right now. Meanwhile, Kyle Wright will take the mound for the Marlins. He has a 2.79 ERA and has just been much more consistent. In the last 30 days, Wright has a 3.78 xFIP with 27.1% of strikeouts. Walks are still a bit high for Wright but overall, he's getting nearly 50% of ground balls and hasn't been giving up ISO power numbers from either side of the plate recently. The Marlins have a .146 ISO and wOBA of .310 against righties in the last 30 days. But if you take away Jazz Chisholm and Jesus Aguilar, the lineup has a lot of disappointment. Miami is walking just 7.8% of the time while hitting 44.3% of ground balls and just 22% of line drives. Again, if you take away those two top-of-the-order players, the Marlins look terrible. I'll rely on Wright to get through a week order and believe the Braves can pounce on Hernandez.
