Bonifacio not in starting lineup

CLEVELAND — For the first time this year, Emilio Bonifacio is not in the starting lineup.

The Marlins center fielder sprained his left thumb in the fifth inning on Friday, and he was removed from the game. He was examined by a doctor on Saturday morning.

Bonifacio has a string of 112 straight games played, which is the third longest in the National League. Bryan Petersen is making the start in center field against the Indians at Progressive Field.

Anibal Sanchez will start for Miami, while Jeanmar Gomez will take the mound for Cleveland.
