Miami Marlins vs. Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

Miami rolls into this game with a record of 17-34.

The Marlins are the second-worst team in the National League.

Only the Colorado Rockies have a worse record in the NL.

This Marlins team made the playoffs a season ago, but has taken a significant step back in 2024.

If the Marlins can't turn it around sooner rather than later, their season will be in jeopardy by early summer.

Miami has a -82 run differential, the worst in the MLB.

However, the Fish are playing their best baseball of the year, winning seven of their last 10 games.

Bryan De La Cruz leads the Marlins with a .259 batting average and nine home runs.

Veteran Josh Bell leads the team with 29 runs batted in on the campaign.

Jazz Chisholm Jr. has added seven home runs and 25 runs batted in.

Southpaw Braxton Garrett will get the nod tonight. Garett is 0-0 with a 10.24 era.

Arizona begins this contest with a 24-26 record.

It has been an underwhelming start for the defending NL Champs.

The Snakes trail the first place by the Dodgers by eight games in the NL West.

Despite it being early in the year, Arizona knows they will need to turn it on sooner rather than later to stay competitive in one of the best divisions in baseball.

Arizona is 6-4 over their last 10 games, including a modest two-game win streak.

All-Star second baseman Ketel Marte leads the squad with a .291 batting average while launching 10 home runs.

First baseman Christian Walker leads the squad with 32 runs batted in.

Rookie of the year Corbin Carroll is in a sophomore slump, hitting just .191 this year.

The D-backs ace Zac Gallen will toe the rubber tonight. Gallen is 5-3 with a 3.02 ERA.

Miami Marlins vs. Arizona Diamondbacks Pick

Despite Garrett having a high ERA, he is much better than his numbers indicate.

Garrett has pitched just two games this year and struggled in both.

He was one of the Marlins' best pitchers a year ago, with an era of 3.66.

Gallen has been solid to start the year and dominates his former team.

The current Marlins lineup bats .139 vs Gallen in 36 at-bats.
