Marlins Lineup

  1. 2B José Devers
  2. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  3. LF Corey Dickerson
  4. C Jorge Alfaro
  5. SS Jazz Chisholm
  6. 3B Isan Díaz
  7. RF Lewis Brinson
  8. CF Magneuris Sierra

Notes: Since returning from the injured list, Jorge Alfaro owns a .273/.360/.455 slash line with a 28.0% strikeout rate (which is good compared to his career norms). Today, he makes his 14th career start in the leadoff spot and his first since 2019...The well-rested pitchers available out of the Marlins bullpen (haven’t pitched in at least two days) are Anthony Bass, Anthony Bender, Richard Bleier, Dylan Floro and Yimi García.

Pirates Lineup

  1. 2B Adam Frazier
  2. 3B Ke’Bryan Hayes
  3. CF Bryan Reynolds
  4. C Jacob Stallings
  5. 1B Erik González
  6. RF Gregory Polanco
  7. SS Kevin Newman
  8. LF Ka’ai Tom
  9. RHP Chase De Jong (2021 season stats: 1.80 ERA, 2.34 FIP, 25.0 K%, 38.5 HardHit% in 5.0 IP)

Notes: The Pirates are sticking with all of the same starting position players that they used on Friday en route to scoring a season-high nine runs...Even though he has just four games under his belt so far this season, third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes could prove to be Rogers’ top challenger for the NL Rookie of the Year award...Adam Frazier leads MLB with 74 hits this season, but only two of those have cleared the fences.
