Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Aguilar and Fortes in, JJ Bleday and Jacob Stallings out; Díaz switches from 1B to DH, De La Cruz switches from RF to CF

Pregame Roster Moves: Anthony Bender returned from rehab and reinstated from 60-day IL; Nick Neidert recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville; Anthony Bass and Zach Pop traded to Toronto Blue Jays

Additional Notes: Bleday has tumbled into a mini-slump since his impactful first weekend in the bigs. He’s still expected to be Miami’s main center fielder down the stretch...Bender had been out for more than two months with a back injury.
