- C Gary Sánchez
- 2B Rougned Odor
- SS Gleyber Torres
- CF Brett Gardner
- 3B Tyler Wade
- LHP Jordan Montgomery (2021 season stats: 3.78 ERA, 3.56 FIP, 24.3 K%, 36.9 HardHit% in 109.2 IP)
Notes: Montgomery hasn’t surrendered any runs in his last 14 2⁄3 innings pitched…Rizzo is attempting to homer in three straight games for the 10th time in his career…Giancarlo Stanton lurks as a pinch-hitting option after starting on Friday and Saturday.

- SS Miguel Rojas
- 3B Brian Anderson
- 1B Lewin Díaz
- C Jorge Alfaro

Notes: Don Mattingly tested positive for COVID-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms. James Rowson will serve as acting manager for the rest of the series…I suspect that Nick Neidert is being recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville to start this game…Lefty on the mound for the opposition, which means it is Miggy Ro’s time to shine. He ranks third among all qualified hitters since 2020 with a 191 wRC+ against left-handers…Brian Anderson has a six-game hitting streak since returning from the injured list. He’s got a .348/.444/.609 slash line during that span…The most well-rested relievers available in the Marlins bullpen are Richard Bleier, Ross Detwiler, Dylan Floro and Austin Pruitt.
