As this is being written the Marlins are currently in the second Wild Card spot in the NL.
It looks like there are going to be about 4 teams sniffing around that spot the rest of the summer with none of them well positioned, yet, to pull away.
Miami deserves to be lauded for what they have done thus far but they need to win the games they are supposed to from here on out.
Philly gets a chance to influence the race by how they do against the likes of the Marlins and the Mets. They continue to struggle with the league’s second worst offense.
There are all sorts of rumour floating around the club including ones where they might even double down by trading some of their prospects that are already performing in the Majors.
Jerad Eickhoff has been steady but unspectacular. He leads the team in innings and has a respectable ERA of 3.98.
I think he is proving that he belongs at this level but we are waiting to see if he can reach that next level like a few of his rotation mates. From time to time it looks like it is there.
He has lost twice to Miami already this season, including last week.
Everyone knows the Marlins stars but they have built a solid team around them.
The offense could use another big bat but they are getting enough production from the likes of Ozuna and Yelich.
Giancarlo Stanton grabs the highlights but they need him to stroke a single every once in a while. Martin Prado, remember him, he is hitting a career best .322.
This lineup is squeezing out just enough a lot of the time.
Tom Koehler is super reliable – leading the team with 20 starts.
Unfortunately, he is not elite and his ERA is at a career high. He beat the Phillies last week, it was his longest outing of the season – 8IP.
He only gave up 2 hits but they were both homers. A.J. Ramos has 31 saves already. That is good for third in the Majors.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
The Phillies will be the underdog here and I think they can be good value because I am looking at the pitching as being a wash or maybe even shading to the side of Philadelphia.
Their lineup is not as good but Eickhoff could get it done.
Koehler certainly does not inspire a ton of confidence but after you get past that everything else tells you to go with the Marlins. The value will be decent, they will probably come off at -120.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Miami
I always love those underdogs but Miami looks like the play here. Koehler was pretty sharp against Philly last week and no reason to think things will be all that different this time around.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Miami 5 – Philadelphia 2
