Yes, these Dodgers are hurting. Max Muncy (on the IL), Chris Taylor, and David Peralta are all sidelined. With that, Doc was forced to get a little creative and we see J.D. Martinez making his first start of the season on the field out in left. Rookie Jonny DeLuca starts in center and Mookie Betts is out in right field.

Michael Busch starts at third base with Taylor nursing a knee injury. Miller will throw to Austin Barnes for the first time in his career while Will Smith starts the game at DH.
