Vazquez facing Cardinals on Saturday

JUPITER, Fla. — After missing one start due to mild soreness in his right elbow, Javier Vazquez is back on the mound for Florida on Saturday against the Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium.

There will be no designated hitter, so Vazquez and St. Louis right-hander Kyle Lohse are both expected to hit.

About 30 minutes before the first pitch, the Marlins announced Logan Morrison was scratched from the lineup due to flu-like symptoms.

Also slated to pitch for the Marlins are Burke Badenhop, Randy Choate and Clay Hensley.

Dewayne Wise is back in the lineup after sitting out a couple of days with a sore left big toe.

Rockies eye Paulino, Baker recovering

Non-tendered recently by the Marlins, catcher Ronny Paulino is expected to garner a bit of attention at the Winter Meetings.

Now a free agent, Paulino is on the radar of the Rockies, who are looking for a veteran backup for Chris Iannetta.

Russell Martin and Benji Molina also have been linked as possibilities for Colorado.

Paulino became expendable after Florida signed free agent John Buck to a three-year, $18 million contract.

Florida is not seeking backup catching help.

John Baker, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery to his right elbow, projects to eventually back up Buck. Because of the surgery, Baker is not expected to be at full throwing strength at the start of Spring Training.

However, Baker is a candidate to make the Opening Day roster as perhaps a left-handed pinch-hitter. Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest noted recently that Baker is being viewed in the lefty pinch-hit role, even if he isn’t ready to play defensively.

In that scenario, Brad Davis and Brett Hayes would have strong chances to make the team as the second string catcher.

Bonifacio back in lineup

Overall, the Marlins are 39-39 on the road this year after they dropped three of four at Milwaukee.

On Monday, they begin their final away series of the season, as they take on the Braves at Turner Field.

Alex Sanabia gets the starting nod, while the Braves are going with Tommy Hanson.

Monday marks the return of Emilio Bonifacio to the starting lineup. Bonifacio has been bothered by a tight left hamstring. He is starting at shortstop as Hanley Ramirez isn’t ready to return.

Hanley hurting, out of lineup

Hanely Ramirez winched in pain several times while swinging the bat in Tuesday’s 5-2 win over the Mets.

On Wednesday, Ramirez was out of the lineup again with a sore left elbow. The elbow has bothered the three-time All-Star shortstop for about six weeks. He had missed four straight games prior to Tuesday.

Now, it is unclear when he will play again. Ozzie Martinez started at shortstop on Wednesday, while Logan Morrison batted third.

The Marlins are shorthanded in the infield because Emilio Bonifacio is nursing a tight left hamstring. He won’t be ready for at least two more days.

Florida concludes its homestand on Wednesday with Alex Sanabia starting against New York’s Jon Niese.
