Jarrod Saltalamacchia is back behind the plate, and Stanton returns to the cleanup spot after being given Sunday afternoon off.

Notes

-Can the Marlins thrive within the division? Facing a NL East opponent, it is essential the Marlins play well and consistently. Miami was swept when they played the Phillies in Philadelphia.

-How will DeSclafani fare? Miami's latest promoted prospect pitched well in his first start, but will a poor outing slot Wolf into the rotation?
