Additional notes: The Cardinals are also playing a “B” game (9 am CT) today to provide some playing time to their STEP (Spring Training Early Program) participants and others in Major League camp who need/want more playing time. The game will be played on one of the backfields on the Marlins’ side of the complex.

“B” game lineup: Peter Bourjos (DH), Greg Garcia (3B), Carson Kelly (C), Steve Bean (DH), Magneuris Sierra (RF), Michael Ohlman (1B), Aledmys Diaz (SS), Breyvic Valera (2B), C.J. McElroy (CF), Charlie Tilson (LF) — Yes, there are intentionally 10 players in this lineup. The only rules in a “B” game are that there really aren’t any.

“B” game pitchers: Rob Kaminsky, Andrew Morales, Trey Nielsen, Jack Flaherty, Kyle Barraclough, Joe Donofrio
