Marlins lineup for Wednesday

Cody Ross still isn’t feeling 100 percent, bothered by flu-like symptoms. So the right fielder was out of the starting lineup again on Wednesday. Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said on Tuesday that he was hoping to give Brian Barden a start.

Barden was in the lineup at shortstop in the series finale with the Padres. For the first time this season, Hanley Ramirez isn’t starting.

The Marlins and Padres have split the first two games of the series, with the finale set for 12:10 p.m. ET.

Lamb learning from Helms

Peer pressure has no age limit.

Yes, the presence of veteran Wes Helms is important in the development of the younger Marlins players. His work ethic also isn’t lost on Mike Lamb, a 33-year-old with nine seasons in the big leagues.

mikelamb3.jpg“He’s a great example to the younger kids, guys coming up, who think they know it all. Not anyone here, in particular,” Lamb said of Helms. “He’s definitely a good example of having a work ethic and being prepared to do the job.

“Peer pressure, it affects everybody, and not just teenagers doing stupid stuff. When you have a guy like that, it rubs off on people. It rubs off on me, and hopefully on the younger guys.”

Helms and Lamb are the two most seasoned Marlins off the bench. The two are the primary pinch-hit options, with Lamb batting from the left side and Helms from the right.

Lamb is in his first season with the Marlins, while Helms is an established presence, who has taken players like Chris Coghlan and Brett Carroll under his wing.

What stands out, to Lamb, is how Helms prepares.

“Success or failure is not really up to the individual. It’s an occurance, really,” Lamb said. “The thing about it is if you are not preparing yourself to be in that moment, that’s where the failure lies. If you’re a guy with talent, and toughness and you play three years instead of 15 becaus, it might be because you cheated yourself in the preparation aspect of it.”

Helms is the type of player who won’t let younger guys slack off.

“He’s a good example for the rookies coming up to not take this opportunity for granted,” Lamb said. “To not let it slip away. To take advantage of it. To prepare yourself like a professional, rather than taking things for granted. If not, the next thing you know, you’re 26 and you’re out of the game. His success is a testament to his preparation.”

Marlins lineup for Wednesday

The Marlins look to snap their two-game losing streak in their four-game set with the Reds on Wednesday night at Sun Life Stadium.

Because left fielder Chris Coghlan bruised his left side while making his diving catch on the warning track on Tuesday night, he is not in the lineup on Wednesday.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez updated his lineup.

Marlins make roster moves

The Marlins have made their first roster moves since the start of the season.

Infielder Emilio Bonifacio was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans, while reliever Jose Veras was designated for assignment.

The Marlins recalled right-hander Chris Leroux from Triple-A to fill in Veras’ spot in the bullpen. Outfielder Brett Carroll was activated off the 15-day disabled list.

Bonifacio was serving as a super utility player, but he is projected to be an every day second baseman. Now he goes to New Orleans, where he can play every day.

Carroll had been on the DL with a strained left oblique. He spent the past few days playing in rehab assignment games for Class A Jupiter.

Carroll strains left oblique

In batting practice, Brett Carroll felt some discomfort.

Not wanting to give up a start in right field, however, the Marlins outfielder stayed in the game. But after it was clear that something was wrong during his at-bat in the second inning, Carroll was replaced.

Shortly afterwards, the team announced that Carroll is hampered with a left oblique strain.

091209carroll1_t300.jpgThe injury actually occurred in batting practice before the Marlins lost, 4-1, to the Twins at Hammond Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

“In my last round of BP, I just felt a little aching,” Carroll said. “My first swing of my first at-bat, I fouled the ball off and I didn’t feel right.”

Carroll ended up striking out, and before the bottom of the second inning started, Bryan Petersen went to right field.

“I’d never experienced this before,” Carroll said. “I’ve never experienced an oblique. It’s mild. We’ll see. It’s one of those things I can’t control.”

With Opening Day slated for April 5, the timing of Carroll’s injury jeopardizes his chances of being on the team when camp concludes.

Carroll is in the mix for an outfield reserve job. A terrific defender, with one of the strongest outfield throwing arms in the game, Carroll has not been a lock to make the club.

For a while the team has considered carrying both Emilio Bonifacio and Brian Barden. Both are natural infielders who can play outfield. Bonifacio will make the team as a super utility player, capable of playing infield and center field.

Barden has enjoyed a strong Spring Training, and he is a candidate to be a backup infielder who also can play corner outfield.

Carroll, meanwhile, his batting .267 with three home runs and six RBIs in 30 Grapefruit League at-bats.

“It’s not near the rib, which is supposed to be ok,” Gonzalez said. “It’s still going to be a couple of days. I wouldn’t know until that thing settles down.”

Lineups for Saturday in Viera

The Marlins take on the Nationals on Saturday afternoon at Space Coast Stadium.

Chris Volstad, looking to win a rotation spot, gets the start for Florida. John Baker is in the lineup, catching for the first time in a Grapefruit League game. Baker has been out with a strained right forearm muscle.
