Marlins Game Notes
Marlins Starting Lineup
- LF Jon Berti (136 wRC+ this season, career 103 wRC+)
- SS Miguel Rojas (85, 87)
- DH Garrett Cooper (140, 123)
- 1B Jesús Aguilar (110, 112)

- 2B Luke Williams
- 3B Erik González
LHP Daniel Castano
Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Berti, Fortes, González and Williams in, Willians Astudillo, Jazz Chisholm Jr., Jorge Soler and Jacob Stallings out
Pregame Roster Moves: Erik González selected from Triple-A Jacksonville; Willians Astudillo designated for assignment
Additional Notes: The Marlins have gradually improved their production against left-handed pitching, but they’re still second-worst in the majors with a 80 wRC+ as a team...With Brian Anderson and Joey Wendle both in the midst of minor league rehab assignments, there could be roster move(s) as soon as Monday to bring them back onto the big league club. The players most vulnerable to getting sent down are Luke Williams, Willians Astudillo and Bryan De La Cruz...Andrés Bolívar of Con Las Bases Llenas spotted Jerar Encarnación and Erik González in the Marlins clubhouse. They are presumably going to be on the taxi squad for the upcoming road trip to St. Louis and Washington.
