Will Hanley return to hitting third?

When Chris Coghlan went on the disabled list with a torn meniscus in his left knee, Hanley Ramirez moved from batting third to leading off.

Now that Cameron Maybin has rejoined the team, Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez is considering getting Ramirez back to the third spot in the lineup.

If all goes well, it could occur this week. The key, Rodriguez says, is Maybin.

Brought up from Triple-A New Orleans now that Cody Ross is with the Giants, Maybin batted seventh on Tuesday at New York.

If Maybin makes consistent contact, look for him to eventually slide to the leadoff spot.

Rodriguez feels Ramirez is best suited to bat third, ahead of Dan Uggla.

The possible lineup by the end of the week could be Maybin (CF), Logan Morrison (LF), Hanley Ramirez (SS), Dan Uggla (2B), Mike Stanton (RF), Gaby Sanchez (1B), Wes Helms (3B), Brett Hayes (C) and then the pitcher.

Why not Sanchez back to his #2 spot and Morrison at 6?
