Starting lineups: Nats vs. Marlins in Jupiter

JUPITER, Fla. – The Nationals and Marlins were supposed to play each other Sunday in West Palm Beach, but were rained out. So instead of the third time, this will only be the second time the National League East rivals will face off in Grapefruit League action, with both coming at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium.

Patrick Corbin makes his third spring training start after impressing in his last outing. The veteran left-hander cruised through three innings Thursday against the Cardinals in this very stadium. He needed only 41 pitches (32 strikes) to complete his day, which was highlighted by the increased use of his new cutter. We’ll see how often Corbin incorporates the pitch today against the Fish.

Kyle Finnegan, Hunter Harvey, Luis Perdomo and Derek Law are the relievers listed to make the trip.

The Nationals have a lot of regulars in the starting lineup facing Marlins lefty Jesús Luzardo. This lineup could be very similar to the one we see on Opening Day. James Wood, Robert Hassell III, Brady House and Trey Lipscomb are scheduled to come off the bench.

Unfortunately, the forecast is calling for thunderstorms all afternoon in the area, so the Nats and Marlins may be looking at their second rainout in four days.

Update: The weather has been bad and forecast doesn't look good, but we are on track to start on time. However, the Marlins scratched and replaced their entire outfield about 20 minutes before first pitch. So that should tell you how they feel about the state of the wet grass at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium ...
