Will update with trends once they're released.
Elieser Hernandez has allowed eight earned runs and 19 hits in 23.2 innings this season, and he has 32 strikeouts to go with four walks. Hernandez was solid in his previous start against the Blue Jays, allowing three earned runs and four hits in 5.1 innings with 11 strikeouts. Hernandez is averaging 12.2 strikeouts per nine innings this season, which is a sign of just nasty stuff. The Miami Marlins have to have a boatload of confidence after going to New York for one game and beating Jacob deGrom as massive underdogs, and their lineup just got a massive boost with the addition of Starling Marte, which he may be cleared to play for this game.
I'll take my chances with the fish and the even money.
