Baker stays back in Jupiter

Feeling a little soreness in his throwing arm, catcher John Baker didn’t make the trip to Port St. Lucie on Friday.

Baker remained in Jupiter.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Baker likely will get Saturday off, when the Marlins face the Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium.

Baker was supposed to start on Friday against the Mets. Instead, Brett Hayes made the start. Chris Volstad got the starting nod for Florida.

On Saturday, Ronny Paulino will start with Josh Johnson on the mound.
