Baker resting sore forearm
John Baker’s sore forearm is keeping him out of game action for at least a few games.
The Marlins catcher didn’t make the trip to Port St. Lucie on Friday, and on Saturday manager Fredi Gonzalez said a possible return to game action could come in the middle of next week.
“We’ll give him a couple of days. It’s just a tight forearm,” Gonzalez said. “We’ll give him a couple of days of no throw. He should be fine.”
Baker was scheduled to start against the Mets on Friday, but Brett Hayes got the call instead.
On Saturday, Ronny Paulino was in the lineup to catch Josh Johnson in a 1:05 p.m. ET game against the Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium.

Maybe the middle of the week, for games.
