The Atlanta Braves will have a new look to their outfield for Sunday’s series finale against the Miami Marlins. The team recalled Orlando Arcia Sunday morning and he will make his Braves debut in left field while hitting seventh. Arcia played four games in left with Gwinnett this week but this will be his first career start in left at the Major League level. He has hit the ball well while with the Stripers and Atlanta is hoping he can jumpstart their struggling offense.

Guillermo Heredia will hit sixth for the Braves and play center while William Contreras returns to the lineup and will be hitting eighth.

Jazz Chisholm is out of the Marlins’ lineup for Sunday. Jon Berti moves up to the leadoff spot and Joe Panik gets the start at second base and will hit seventh. Sandy Leon will catch Zach Thompson and will hit eighth.

Sunday’s game will get underway at 1:20 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports Southeast.
