Reyes batting third for first time
MIAMI — Speed is the Marlins’ best attribute right now, so manager Ozzie Guillen has decided to exploit it.
With Hanley Ramirez now in Los Angeles, the Marlins are minus some more power.
So on Friday, Guillen opted to drop Jose Reyes from the leadoff spot to third for the first time this year. Reyes is riding a 13-game hitting streak.
Emilio Bonifacio was put into the leadoff spot, and Donovan Solano, playing third base in place of Ramirez, is hitting second.
The Marlins on Friday announced Donnie Murphy has his contract selected from Triple-A New Orleans.
1) Bonifacio, 2B
2) Solano, 3B
3) Reyes, SS
4) Lee, 1B
5) Ruggiano, CF
6) Morrison, LF
7) Petersen, RF
8) Buck, C
9) Zambrano, P
