UPDATE, 1:50 p.m.: Marlins DH Garrett Cooper and right fielder Harold Ramirez have tested positive for Covid-19, according to Jon Heyman. They join previously reported starter Jose Urena and catcher Jorge Alfaro in needing to quarantine.

The Miami Marlins wrap up their season-opening series with the Philadelphia Phillies, but they will be without their planned starting pitcher on Sunday. Jose Urena was scratched from his start due to a positive Covid-19 test. Robert Dugger is getting the start in his place. Jon Heyman is reporting Urena is asymptomatic.

This comes along with news that two starting position players tested positive for Covid-19, according to Heyman. The Marlins released their lineup for Sunday’s rubber match with the Phillies, and they are without some planned starters. The third game of a series can often be a day where players get a day off, so we can’t say for certain what this means.

Here’s what the Marlins lineup looks like for Sunday.

1. Jonathan Villar, DH
2. Jon Berti, RF
3. Corey Dickerson, LF
4. Jesús Aguilar, 1B
5. Brian Anderson, 3B
6. Francisco Cervelli, C
7. Isan Diaz, 2B
8. Miguel Rojas, SS
9. Magneuris Sierra, CF
SP: Robert Dugger, RHP

Here’s what the Phillies lineup looks like:

1. Adam Haseley, CF
2. Rhys Hoskins, 1B
3. Bryce Harper, RF
4. J.T. Realmuto, C
5. Didi Gregorius, SS
6. Jean Segura, 3B
7. Jay Bruce, LF
8. Scott Kingery, 2B
9. Neil Walker, DH
SP: Vince Velasquez, RHP
