Gaby in lineup Friday
On a day he was suspended for three games by Major League Baseball, Gaby Sanchez was back in the Marlins lineup on Friday in the series opener with the Braves.
Sanchez is appealing his three-game penalty levied by MLB on Friday. Sanchez was involved in the melee with the Nationals on Wednesday night.
Friday also marked the return of Dan Uggla to the starting lineup. Uggla missed three straight games due to a strained right groin.
The Marlins on Friday also announced they selected the contracts of outfielder Scott Cousins and reliever Chris Leroux from Triple-A New Orleans.
Here’s the Marlins lineup for Friday: Cameron Maybin (CF), Logan Morrison (LF), Hanley Ramirez (SS), Dan Uggla (2B), Gaby Sanchez (1B), Chad Tracy (3B), Mike Stanton (RF), Brad Davis (C), Andrew Miller (P).
