Starting lineups: Nats vs. Marlins in Jupiter

JUPITER, Fla. – It’s an unusually chilly morning here in South Florida, with cloudy skies, a steady wind from the north and a chance of some rain this afternoon. Doesn’t seem like anything that will impact the Nationals’ game against the Marlins, but it does have guys wearing pullovers on top of their jerseys despite the fact it’s mid-March in South Florida.

The Nats are still waiting for news on Cade Cavalli’s MRI, so in the meantime they’ll focus their attention on this afternoon’s contest. It’s Patrick Corbin taking the mound for his fourth start of the spring, potentially able to go five full innings if he can keep his pitch count down. A quality outing today would be nice for Corbin, who, as we’ve stated, is currently lined up to pitch Opening Day against the Braves.

Miami is starting 19-year-old prospect Eury Pérez, not to be confused with the outfielder of the same name who played in 22 games for the Nationals in 2012-13. Davey Martinez’s lineup includes five regulars: Lane Thomas, Dominic Smith, Corey Dickerson, Luis García and Victor Robles (who is DHing today after making his return to center field on Tuesday).
