Can i use bigger pieces of wood for joist blocking?

I made another question about it but actually I need to know something different.
I have 60mmx200mmx3.8m joists.
Can I use pieces cut from 75x200x3.8m joists(thicker) available today for blocking?

Of course you can in fairness the thicker the better be much stronger

Thicker the better

It would be far better to use the larger timber especially over a 3.8 span
