Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Anderson and Stallings in, Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Nick Fortes out; Berti switches from 3B to 2B, Aguilar/Cooper swap DH/1B

Pregame Roster Moves: Luke Williams recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville; Jazz Chisholm Jr. placed on 10-day injured list (right lower back strain)

Additional Notes: The Chisholm IL stint is expected to last significantly longer than the 10-day minimum, according to Craig Mish of SportsGrid. Brutal. Berti figures to be Miami’s primary second baseman in the meantime...With an off day looming on Thursday, every arm in the Marlins bullpen ought to be available.

Cardinals Starting Lineup

  1. 2B Brendan Donovan (150 wRC+ this season, career 150 wRC+)
  2. CF Dylan Carlson (104, 105)
  3. 1B Paul Goldschmidt (199, 144)
  4. 3B Nolan Arenado (141, 119)
  5. LF Juan Yepez (123, 123)
  6. RF Lars Nootbaar (42, 79)
