Hanley back hitting third
Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez talked about it a day ago. The switch became official on Wednesday.
The Marlins shuffled their lineup against the Mets, sliding Hanley Ramirez down to the No. 3 spot in the lineup for the first time since July 27.
Cameron Maybin moved to the leadoff spot in the second game of the Marlins’ series with New York.
Rodriguez wanted Ramirez hitting third because he feels the slugger is better suited to drive in runs. Often as a leadoff batter, he his hitting with no one on base.
Ramirez also sported a new look on Wednesday. Earlier in the day, he colored his hair. He was trying to change it to blonde, but instead it turned red.
The Marlins lineup for Wednesday is: Cameron Maybin (CF), Logan Morrison (LF), Hanley Ramirez (SS), Dan Uggla (2B), Gaby Sanchez (1B), Mike Stanton (RF), Wes Helms (3B), Brett Hayes (C), Alex Sanabia (P).
