Hanley back in lineup

Hanley Ramirez is back in the Marlins lineup after sitting out four straight games with left elbow inflammation.

The three-time All-Star shortstop came in early on Tuesday and took some swings in the cages. While he didn’t show full extension with his elbow during batting practice on Monday, Ramirez is playing, and he will wear a protective sleeve on his left arm when he is batting.

Ramirez said his elbow has been bothering him for about six weeks.

The Marlins and Mets open a two-game series on Tuesday at Sun Life Stadium. Adalberto Mendez gets the start for Florida against New York’s Mike Pelfrey.

Logan Morrison enters Tuesday riding a string of 39 straight games of reaching safely.

Marlins-Phillies lineups

The Marlins strive to avoid being swept on Wednesday, but it will be a daunting task.

The Phillies are sending Roy Halladay to the mound, while the Marlins are countering with Jorge Sosa, who will start for the first time since 2007 when he was with the Mets. Reliever Brian Sanches likely will throw multiple innings in relief of Sosa, who may only go three or four innings.

Gaby begins suspension

Marlins first baseman Gaby Sanchez, who was in the middle of the benches-clearing altercation with the Nationals on Sept. 1, is beginning his three-game suspension on Friday night at Washington.

Wes Helms is getting the start at first base for Florida in its first meeting with the Nationals since the incident in Miami.

Sanchez was one of the active participants in the altercation as he knocked down Nyjer Morgan, who had charged the mound and thrown a punch at Chris Volstad.

In the seventh inning of the Sept. 1 game, Sanchez was drilled by a Doug Slaten pitch. Slaten received a three-game suspension.

By serving the suspension now, Sanchez will miss all three games at Washington.

Marlins lineup for Friday: Emilio Bonifacio (3B), Logan Morrison (LF), Hanley Ramirez (SS), Dan Uggla (2B), Wes Helms (1B), Mike Stanton (RF), Cameron Maybin (CF), Brad Davis (C), Alex Sanabia (P).

Surgery a success for Baker

Don’t rule out John Baker being back in 2011, and perhaps being ready for Spring Training.

Baker underwent Tommy John surgery on Friday, having his right elbow ligament repaired by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. All went well.

baker1.jpgIn a text message on Friday, the Marlins catcher noted that he was upbeat. As for recovery, he said: “There were even some rumblings of the words ‘Spring Training.’ ”

Dr. Andrews on Friday also smoothed the olecranon — the bone at the tip of his right elbow. In 2007, Baker broke the same bone.

Baker is looking forward to soon beginning the recovery process, and he is looking forward to coming back “stronger than ever in 2011.”

With Baker out, Brad Davis currently is handling the Marlins catching duties. Chris Hatcher is backing up.

On Monday, the team added some catching depth by signing Mike Rivera to a Minor League contract. Rivera could join the club at any time.
