FiveThirtyEight gives the Marlins a 51% chance to win their series opener against the Phillies.
Jesús Sánchez (right hamstring tightness) and Edward Cabrera (right middle finger blister) both exited Thursday’s loss early. Cabrera said postgame that he plans to continue building up his workload by pitching for Estrellas Orientales in the Dominican Winter League. He combined for 87 2⁄3 innings pitched with the Marlins and their minor league affiliates.
Pablo López (right rotator cuff strain) will start for the Marlins in Sunday’s regular season finale, making his first MLB appearance since July 11.
