Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Anderson, García, Soler and Stallings in, Jesús Aguilar, Nick Fortes, Erik González and Luke Williams out; Berti switches from LF to 2B, Cooper switches from DH to 1B, De La Cruz switches from RF to LF
Pregame Roster Moves: Brian Anderson activated from injured list; Luke Williams optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville
Additional Notes: Joey Wendle (hamstring strain) hasn’t yet rejoined the team, according to Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald. Jazz Chisholm Jr. (back spasms) remains on the active roster, but his availability for tonight is unclear...Soler (.368 OPS in 20 PA) and García (.667 OPS in 15 PA) have the most head-to-head history with Wainwright among players on the Marlins active roster.
Cardinals Starting Lineup
- SS Tommy Edman (115, 103)
- LF Brendan Donovan (155, 155)
- 1B Paul Goldschmidt (192, 143)
- 3B Nolan Arenado (141, 119)
- 2B Nolan Gorman (113, 113)
- CF Dylan Carlson (104, 105)
- DH Juan Yepez (123, 123)
- RF Lars Nootbaar (53, 84)

RHP Adam Wainwright
Pregame Roster Moves: OF Conner Capel and RHP James Naile selected from Triple-A Memphis; OF Harrison Bader (right foot plantar fasciitis) and RHP Jack Flaherty (right shoulder strain) placed on injured list
Notes: The Cardinals will miss Bader’s defense. The reigning NL Gold Glove award winner has contributed five outs above average already this season...The 40-year-old Wainwright is among the softest-throwing right-handers in the majors. His signature curveball remains an effective weapon, particularly against lefties.
