LoMo gets start at DH

CLEVELAND — The Marlins open their Interleague schedule on Friday with the first of three against the Indians at Progressive Field.

Playing by American League rules, the Marlins will use a designated hitter for the first time this year. Manager Ozzie Guillen has opted to give Logan Morrison’s legs a breather. So instead of playing left field, Morrison is staying in the lineup as the DH against Cleveland right-hander Justin Masterson.

Greg Dobbs is getting the start at first base. Miami will have five hitters who will face Masterson from the left side, including switch-hitters, Jose Reyes and Emilio Bonifacio.

Carlos Zambrano will pitch for Miami.
