- 2B Ronald Torreyes
- RF Bryce Harper
- 1B Brad Miller
- SS Didi Gregorius
- 3B Freddy Galvis
- CF Travis Jankowski
- C Andrew Knapp
RHP Hans Crouse
Notes: The youngest pitcher used by the Phillies this season, Crouse made his major league debut on Sunday against the Pirates (3.0 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 1 K, 1 HR on 59 pitches)…It’s a critical stat-padding weekend for National League MVP candidate Bryce Harper.
Marlins Starting Lineup
- SS Miguel Rojas
- 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr.
- RF Bryan De La Cruz
- 1B Lewin Díaz
- LF Lewis Brinson
- 3B Eddy Alvarez
- C Alex Jackson
- CF Brian Miller
- LHP Jesús Luzardo (2021 season stats: 6.90 ERA, 5.85 FIP, 20.9 K%, 39.0 HardHit% in 90.0 IP)
Notes: Jackson, for the first time in his MLB career, has reached base safely four times in a span of five plate appearances. Baby steps!…The most well-rested pitchers available in the Marlins bullpen are Anthony Bass, Anthony Bender, Richard Bleier, Paul Campbell, Dylan Floro and Steven Okert.
