Ehire Adrianza will start in right field and lead off for the Atlanta Braves when they close out the first half of the season Sunday against the Miami Marlins. Adrianza of course is replacing Ronald Acuña Jr. who was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee late Saturday night and will miss the remainder of the 2021 season. The Braves recalled Johan Camargo to fill the vacant roster spot Sunday.

Orlando Arcia will get another start in left field and will hit fifth. Guillermo Heredia will be in center hitting seventh while Kevin Smith starts behind the plate and will hit eighth.

For the Marlins, Starling Marte returns to the lineup after being unavailable for Saturday. Sandy Leon will catch and hit seventh while Joe Panik gets the start at third base and will hit eighth.

Sunday’s game is scheduled to get underway at 1:10 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports Southeast.
