MLB: Miami Marlins at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Gregory Polanco and Elias Diaz will make their 2019 debuts Monday when the Pirates play host to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Polanco, who has been out since September after left shoulder surgery, will bat third and play right field. Catcher Elias Diaz was sidelined this spring with an illness. He was activated off the injury list Sunday, but did not enter the game. He will bat seventh.

Adam Frazier will also be returning to the lineup after missing the past three games with back spasms.

Joe Musgrove- the NL leader in ERA (0.81) and FIP (1.88)- will take the mound for the Pirates. Arizona will counter with Zack Godley (1-1, 6.26).

First pitch is at 7:05 p.m..
