Jorge Soler and Sandy Alcantara both ended up on the IL this week. So that should help the Phillies this weekend, they may also need some help with the weather, as showers are forecasted over the weekend as well.Embed from Getty Images
The Marlins looked as though they were going to make a run to get into the playoffs, but this development has been not good to help improve those chances. These two players were the catalyst of good things for the Marlins. Now, the Phils will see a bit of a different foe in the Marlins this weekend.Embed from Getty Images
