Cantu in lineup

Encouraging news for the Marlins.

Jorge Cantu, who was plunked on the left hand by a pitch on Wednesday, was back in the starting lineup on Friday against the Mets. Cantu is slotted to bat cleanup and play first base.

Cantu was struck on the back of his left hand by a Daniel Cabrera or Washington fastball. X-rays came back negative.

The batting order was similar to what the team has been using against right-handed pitching.

Mets lineup: Reyes, Murphy, Wright, Delgado, Beltran, Church, Schneider, Castillo and Maine.

– Joe Frisaro

Could you post both teams lineups? I am curious to see if they bench Castillo again.

Cantu has one of the most fragile hands in the league.

I know I watched him in Cincinatti.

As readers probably know the lineups are posted on MLB.com’s GameDay, the best way to follow pitch by pitch.
