Cardinals Lineup

  1. 2B Kolten Wong
  2. LF Tommy Edman
  3. C Yadier Molina
  4. SS Paul DeJong
  5. 3B Brad Miller
  6. RF Dexter Fowler
  7. CF Harrison Bader
  8. 1B Rangel Ravelo
  9. SP Adam Wainwright (2020 Spring Training: 7.27 ERA, 2.08 WHIP, 3 K in 8.2 IP)

Notes: The Cardinals overall have been a slightly above-average offensive team this spring, walking frequently (82 BB ranks fourth in MLB), but struggling on the basepaths (7-for-14 on stolen base attempts).

Marlins Lineup

  1. CF Jonathan Villar
  2. 3B Jon Berti
  3. LF Corey Dickerson
  4. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  5. RF Matt Joyce
  6. 2B Sean Rodríguez
  7. C Chad Wallach
  8. SS Eddy Alvarez
  9. SP José Ureña (2020 Spring Training: 2.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, 5 K in 9.0 IP)

Notes: The latest Swings and Mishes episode with Craig Mish has plenty of insight into the Marlins’ decision-making process regarding the Opening Day roster. After previously reporting that Ureña was a likely trade candidate, Mish concedes that he is now expected to open the regular season in Miami’s starting rotation...Wednesday’s victory over the Yankees was enjoyable on a number of levels.
