Notes: Since being traded to San Diego by the Nationals, Soto has raked up to expectations (.326/.463/.512, 180 wRC+) while Bell has been slow to adjust (.140/.288/.163, 46 wRC+)...Alfaro had been Manaea’s personal catcher through his first 20 starts of the season. That finally changed last week against the Giants, but now he’s back in his usual role.

  4. RF Brian Anderson (110, 49)

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Anderson, Cooper, Fortes and Leblanc in, Jon Berti, Lewin Díaz, Jacob Stallings and Joey Wendle out; Bleday switches from RF to LF, Williams switches from LF to 2B

Pregame Roster Moves: RHP Cole Sulser returned from rehab and reinstated from the 60-day IL; RHP Parker Bugg designated for assignment

Additional Notes: This has all the makings of a statement game for Cabrera. He has been exceptional when healthy this season. One more good start against a playoff-caliber lineup would go a long way toward solidifying him as the No. 3 guy in the Marlins rotation...Remember, relievers Andrew Nardi and Parker Bugg were just called up. Nardi could quickly receive opportunities in high-leverage situations, while Bugg is more likely to pitch if the Marlins are winning/losing by a large margin...Closer Tanner Scott is presumably unavailable after throwing approximately a zillion pitches over the last two days.
