  1. CF Jazz Chisholm Jr. (78 wRC+ this season, bats left)
  2. DH Jorge Soler (109, R)
  3. 2B Luis Arraez (171, L)
  4. LF Bryan De La Cruz (77, R)
  5. RF Jesús Sánchez (127, L)
  6. 1B Yuli Gurriel (101, R)
  7. SS Joey Wendle (6, L)
  8. C Nick Fortes (50, R)
  9. 3B Jon Berti (92, R)

LHP Jesús Luzardo (120 ERA+ this season)

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Berti in, Jean Segura out

Additional Marlins Notes: After a lousy start to his season, Sánchez is on pace to set new career-highs in numerous rate stats and his 53.8% hard-hit rate is tops among all Marlins players...With the exception of Chi Chi González and Andrew Nardi (pitched on back-to-back-to-back days), every member of the Marlins bullpen should be available in relief of Luzardo.

Diamondbacks Starting Lineup

  1. 2B Ketel Marte (117 wRC+ this season, bats switch)
  2. DH Emmanuel Rivera (178, R)
  3. LF Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (140, R)
  4. 1B Christian Walker (133, R)
  5. 3B Evan Longoria (63, R)
  6. CF Corbin Carroll (143, L)
  7. SS Nick Ahmed (47, R)
  8. C Gabriel Moreno (95, R)
  9. RF Dominic Fletcher (155, L)

RHP Brandon Pfaadt (34 ERA+ this season)

Diamondbacks Notes: Pfaadt struggled against the Rangers in his major league debut last week. He’s got a four-seam fastball/slider/changeup/curveball pitch mix. Triple-A and MLB combined, Pfaadt hasn’t walked a right-handed batter all season...Walker has homered five times over the last week, including a 459-footer on Monday that was among the longest of his career.
