Hanley sits, Johnson back

For the first time since Sept. 25, Nick Johnson is back in the Marlins starting lineup. While Johnson, who has dealt with the flu, returned, All-Star shortstop Hanley Ramirez was given the day off.

Ramirez, who leads the National League in hitting with a .341 average, was expected to get this day off. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said on Wednesday that he would give Ramirez Friday off. The team also was off on Thursday.

The Marlins finish their season against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
