The lineups for tonight’s game between the Braves and the Marlins have been released, so let’s go ahead and talk about them.

As usual, let’s start with the Braves:

Travis d’Arnaud gets the nod to start at catcher after taking Sunday off in favor of Stephen Vogt. Meanwhile, Joc Pederson is also sitting as Guillermo Heredia gets an opportunity to play center field and bat eighth tonight. The top six is filled with the usual suspects that you would expect to see at this point in the season.

Meanwhile, here’s how the Marlins are looking:

Jesus Sanchez had been on the 10-day IL for reasons related to COVID-19, but he’s been activated after doing a rehab stint in the minors. He’ll be making his first major league appearance since he nearly hit for the cycle on July 11 against, you guessed it, the Braves. Meanwhile, Jazz Chisholm is getting the start at shortstop and batting leadoff today, in lieu of Miguel Rojas.
