Infante back in starting lineup
MIAMI — The Marlins offense is about to get another boost.
Omar Infante has returned to the starting lineup after missing three games due to a death in the family. The veteran second baseman’s grandfather passed away on Sunday, and Infante returned to Venezuela for the funeral.
Donnie Murphy had been filling in at second. Murphy on Tuesday night was hit by a pitch on the left hand. While it got him pretty good, it wasn’t the same wrist that he dislocated in 2010, which required surgery.
The Marlins have won three straight and they go for the sweep on Wednesday against the Rockies at Marlins Park.
