Marlins vs. Red Sox: Start time, how to watch, game thread and Fish Picks—September 15, 2020

He’s due to come alive sooner or later, so the Marlins should pitching to him carefully during this series like they ordinarily would...The Baseball America scouting report on Houck from 2019 reads, “Houck’s flexibility permits him to have excellent extension from a low three-quarters arm slot, though he has a lot of moving parts and sometimes struggles to hold his release point.

Moving forward, he has the potential to employ both a sinking two-seamer with armside run and a four-seamer that stays true to his glove side to spread the strike zone for swings and misses at the top of it and grounders at the bottom.

Baseball Savant Notes: Sean Rodríguez just replaced Isan Díaz (groin) on the active roster.

His track record as a hitter has been mixed, but at the very least, he can provide defensive versatility...Sandy has never faced the Red Sox before, though it is worth mentioning that their team has been terrible this season against high velocity.

Boston’s .261 wOBA on pitches 95+ mph is second-worst in the majors, according to Baseball Savant....The final few weeks of the Marlins regular season schedule are a grind, and it won’t get much easier if they qualify for the playoffs.
