JUPITER, Fla. - Matt Adams continues to make a strong case for the Cardinals roster. And the Cardinals keep putting him out there.

Adams will get another start Sunday when he serves as the designated hitter for their 12:05 PM CT matchup against the Florida Marlins.

Allen Craig moves back to first base Sunday. He served as the right fielder on Saturday.

Lance Lynn will make his fourth spring start for the Cardinals on the mound.

Here's the complete Cardinals lineup:

Jon Jay, CF

Matt Holliday, LF
Allen Craig, 1B
Matt Adams, DH
Pete Kozma, SS
