Nats, Marlins lineups for home opener at Space Coast Stadium

VIERA, Fla. - The new-look Marlins (is that a nice way to say it, or what?) come to town this afternoon to take on the Nationals in their home opener at Space Coast Stadium.

Danny Espinosa and Kurt Suzuki will make their spring debuts this afternoon under cloudy skies, as the Nationals face young right-hander Henderson Alvarez, one of the arms the Marlins got from the Blue Jays in that massive trade this offseason.

Jordan Zimmermann gets the ball for the Nats, with Zach Duke scheduled to follow him to the mound. Yunesky Maya, Jeremy Accardo, Will Ohman and Drew Storen are also on the list of available pitchers today, with Tanner Roark and Pat McCoy available as backup.
