Starting Lineup

1 Trea Turner SS
2 Adam Eaton OF
3 Starlin Castro 2B
4 Juan Soto OF
5 Eric Thames 1B
6 Victor Robles OF
7 Yan Gomes C
8 Carter Kieboom 3B


Quick notes: Probable platoon at first base between Thames and Ryan Zimmerman, and a bit of a logjam at second base with Castro, Kendrick, and Asdrubal Cabrera.

Pitching Rotation

1 Max Scherzer R
2 Stephen Strasburg R
3 Patrick Corbin L
4 Anibal Sanchez R
5 Joe Ross R



Quick notes: This is one of the shakiest closer situations in the league as Doolittle lost the job for some time last year.
