The Braves roll out a relatively normal lineup for the Saturday afternoon game against Miami at 4:10 PM. Orlando Arcia rejoins the lineup in the fifth spot, batting behind Austin Riley. Arcia has had a good few games in Atlanta since being called up from Gwinnett, where he resided since being traded to Atlanta from Milwaukee. Guillermo Heredia, of the floppy pirate swords gets the nod in the other spot of what has become outfielder roulette this season. The recently called-up Jonathan Lucroy gets the game behind the plate in place of the new regular catcher Kevan Smith. Catcher has been a strong spot for the Atlanta franchise in recent years, but this season the position has turned into a pretty rough platoon after underperformance and injury to Travis d’Arnaud and struggles from the young William Contreras.

Meanwhile, the Marlins’ own account and writers refuse to announce their lineups at a reasonable time on gamedays, so here is a tweet of the lineup listed on MLB.com from my own account. Miami is mostly rolling with the regulars, including #oldfriend Adam Duvall, who has torn the Braves apart this season after being non-tendered by Atlanta in the offseason.
