The Marlins are the visiting team in the 1:05 p.m. ET contest at Roger Dean Stadium.

Sanchez is expected to throw about two innings and/or 30 pitches.

“I’ve got the first game,” Sanchez said. “I’m ready for this game. I just want to make sure that I’m ready for the season. I want to throw strikes and make good gains. I don’t care if I pitch the first game, second or third game. I want to get ready for the season.”
