Lineup gets alterations with Carpenter hitting No. 4; Arenado, Edman sit

The Cardinals’ lineup will undergo an extreme makeover for Wednesday afternoon’s meeting with Miami as Matt Carpenter hits fourth and plays third base, Nolan Arenado takes a day off and Tommy Edman sits again with torso tightness.

With Edman sidelined, Dylan Carlson will be in the leadoff position followed by Paul Goldschmidt and Tyler O’Neill. Carpenter will hit fourth for the first time this season.

“I spoke with (Edman) and he’s feeling better but he’s not going to be in there today, and we’ll see whether it makes sense for him to be available,” manager Mike Shildt said.
