Reyes dropped to second in lineup shuffle

MIAMI — For the first time since July 10, 2010 against the Braves, Jose Reyes is batting second.

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen decided to flip-flop the top of his order. Emilio Bonifacio is batting first in the second of four games against the D-backs at Marlins Park.

Giancarlo Stanton also was given Saturday off, as Greg Dobbs started in right field. And Omar Infante, who has dealt with a sore left groin, was given a breather. Infante is not expected to play on Sunday either, after Guillen noticed the second baseman was moving gingerly on Friday night.

The hope is Infante will be back on Monday, but that is not definitive.


1) Bonifacio, 2B

2) Reyes, SS

3) Ramirez, 3B

4) Morrison, LF

5) G. Sanchez, 1B

6) Dobbs, RF

7) Hayes, C

8) Coghlan, CF

9) A. Sanchez, P
