VIERA, Fla. – The three players going for the final outfield spot on the Cardinals bench will all get a good view of their competition Sunday. All three will start in the outfield against the Washington Nationals.
Shane Robinson will lead off and play center field, Adron Chambers will bat second and play left field and Justin Christian will hit eighth and play right field. All three have had impressive springs but likely only one will earn a spot on the big league roster.
Matt Carpenter starts at second base again and will hit third.
Jaime Garcia makes his second start of the spring and will likely throw around 50 pitches.
The rest of the Cardinals lineup:
Shane Robinson, CF
Adron Chambers, LF
Matt Carpenter, 2B
Ty Wigginton, DH
Matt Adams, 1B
Tony Cruz, C
Pete Kozma, 3B
Justin Christian, RF
Ronny Cedeno, SS
