Miami Marlins vs Tampa Bay Rays (By: Mulder)
RHP Morton is 3-0 with a 2.64 ERA and with tremendous stuff as well: 11.37 K/9, 51.5 GB% altough he is shaky with his command at times: 4.26 BB/9.
He did not face the Marlins since 2015 but he posted a 2.88 xFIP that year against the Fish in 12.1 innings pitched.
For Miami Caleb Smith will start on the mound and the Southpaw keeps impressing. He is 3-0 with a 2.11 ERA and has great stuff to go with: 11.81 K/9 (!), 2.53 BB/9.
He posted a 5.40 ERA in 3.1 IP against the Rays but this was as a Yankee back in 2017 when he was not pitching that great at all.
Rays are not THAT great against Lefties> 18th in advanced stats.
Hence backing the first half under.
