Baseball vs. Florida Friday Starting Lineup
It's 80 degrees here in Gainesville and it should remain in the 80's with plenty of sun all weekend. Last night on 104.5 FM The Zone with Willy Daunic, Coach Corbin mentioned that Curt Casali will sit out this weekend while still rehabbing from the hamstring injury. He is here but unlikely to see any action outside of a possible pinch hit role, if active.
With the Casali injury, the Commodores will try and maximize their defensive alignments against a good Florida offensive ballclub.

Sonny Gray (4-2, 2.25 ERA) will look to continue where he left off last week against Kentucky. He held the Wildcats scoreless in seven innings of work and picked up SEC Pitcher of the Week honors.
Florida is going with sophomore southpaw Alex Panteliodis (5-1, 2.03 ERA) who has been equally impressive for the Gators. His lone loss of the year came against Ole Miss last weekend after he gave up three runs in 7.1 innings with eight strikeouts. He has 28 K's to just five walks in 31.0 innings of work.
