E. Hernandez - RP
Elieser Hernandez was excellent in his season debut Wednesday, tossing 4 1/3 scoreless innings in the Marlins' 1-0 win over the Orioles.
Hernandez plunked a couple batters, but he yielded just two hits and fanned five batters. He did need a little help from reliever Nick Vincent in the fifth after being pulled with one out and runners on the corners. Vincent obliged with an inning-ending double play. Hernandez showed flashes last season but had issues with the home run ball. If he can get those at least a little under control, he could be worth using in favorable matchups. Hernandez faces the Blue Jays next.

Brandon Kintzler stranded a runner to nail down his second save of the season on Wednesday versus the Orioles.
Pat Valaika reached on a two-out infield single to put the tying run on base, but Kintzler set down Pedro Severino to preserve the victory. Kintzler has notched both of the Marlins' saves in the early going. The lack of strikeouts aren't ideal, but he looks to be the clear closer for manager Don Mattingly.

B. Anderson - 3B
Brian Anderson clubbed a solo home run Wednesday for the only run of the game in the first game of a doubleheader against the Orioles.
Anderson popped a leadoff blast off of Alex Cobb in the fourth inning and that's all the run support Elieser Hernadez and the Marlins' bullpen wound up needing. The 27-year-old is making his first-ever start at first base in the nightcap.

A. Hays - CF
Austin Hays went 0-for-3 at the plate in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Marlins.
Hays began the season as the Orioles' leadoff hitter, but he's since been moved down to the No. 6 spot following a rough start. The young outfielder's batting line is down to .139/.220/.139 and he's still looking for his first extra-base hit of the season.

B. Leibrandt - SP
Marlins added LHP Brandon Leibrandt to their 60-man player pool.
The son of long-time big leaguer Charlie Leibrandt, Brandon had been pitching in independent ball. He last pitched in affiliated ball in 2018 at Triple-A in the Phillies organization.

B. Serven - C
Rockies added C Brian Serven to their 60-man player pool.
Serven, 25, had just a .649 OPS at the Double-A level last season. He's merely organizational depth.

Hector Neris retired the only batter he faced to notch his first save of the season on Wednesday against the Yankees.
Phillies manager Joe Girardi called upon his closer with two runners on and the team nursing a four-run lead. Neris needed just one pitch to escape the threat, getting Miguel Andujar to fly out to end it. He has a chance to be one of the better closers in the game if he can stay healthy.
Added 7:43 pm (EST)
Aaron Judge popped his league-leading seventh home run in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.
It was 11-3 entering the bottom of the seventh inning (the last inning during doubleheaders now), but Judge made the Phillies sweat a little when he cut their lead to 11-7 after his bomb. Fortunately for the Phils, that wound up being the final score. Judge now has seven longballs and 17 RBI on the season, both of which lead baseball.
