Hanley back, Stanton stays back
Hanley Ramirez is back in the lineup after resting a tight right groin. But prospect Mike Stanton was held back in Jupiter with a sore left elbow.
Stanton was initially scheduled to travel to Lake Buena Vista on Tuesday to face the Braves. Had he gone, two of the top three prospects in the game would have been together. Atlanta’s Jason Heyward is regarded as the No. 1 prospect, with Stanton ranked No. 3.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Stanton is a little sore after his four at-bat performance on Monday against the Twins. The slugger had a two-run homer, and struck out three times.
Ramirez, meanwhile, was in the starting lineup against the Braves.
In other injury news, Cameron Maybin is running the bases on Tuesday in Jupiter. If he doesn’t feel any discomfort, he could be back in the lineup on Wednesday. Maybin has been out since March 7 with a strained left groin.
Jorge Cantu, out since Sunday with flu-like symptoms, stayed in Jupiter on Tuesday. He is feeling better and may be in the lineup on Wednesday.
