NBC SportsJake Burger is not in the Marlins' starting lineup for Friday night's soiree against the Reds.

The 28-year-old slugger had had a rough go overall at the plate this season, hitting just .215/.256/.349 with nine homers, 31 RBI and an 81/16 K/BB ratio over 293 plate appearances. Perhaps a night off to clear his head will do him some good. Emmanuel Rivera will start in his place at the hot corner and will bat sixth against Carson Spiers and the Reds on Friday evening in Cincinnati.

NBC SportsJosh Hader fired a scoreless ninth inning on Tuesday against the Marlins to collect his 16th save of the season.

Hader got the call to protect a one-run margin in the final frame and made things interesting by issuing a one-out walk to Jake Burger. He managed to coax a fielder's choice from Xavier Edwards before fanning lefty-masher Emmanuel Rivera to preserve the victory. It was a much-needed strong outing for the 30-year-old elite closer after giving up runs in four of his previous six outings since June 25.
