JJ to get first Spring swings

There will be no designated hitter in Monday’s Grapefruit League game at Roger Dean Stadium. So that means, Josh Johnson will be taking his first swings of Spring Training.

The Marlins are starting Johnson, and looking to throw him three or four innings. Atlanta is countering with Tim Hudson in the 1:05 p.m. ET start.

Before Johnson was shut down last year due to a back injury and sore right shoulder, he was instructed only to swing the bat when necessary. So frequently, he would take pitches rather than risk tweaking his back.

The Marlins pitchers have been hitting in the cages of late.

Monday is an exception on the Marlins’ pitchers hitting. The team plans on having them hit regularly beginning on March 22.

Marlins lineup:

1) Chris Coghlan, CF

2) Omar Infante, 2B

3) Hanley Ramirez, SS

4) John Buck, C

5) Logan Morrison, LF

6) Wes Helms, 1B

7) Scott Cousins, RF

8) Donnie Murphy, 3B

9) Josh Johnson, P

JJ to throw three innings

VIERA, Fla. — Marlins ace Josh Johnson, who will pitch in the April 1 season opener, is expected to throw three innings or around 55 pitches on Wednesday against the Nationals at Space Coast Stadium.

Greg Dobbs was supposed to be the designated hitter, but he was scratched because of a sore knee. Dobbs was shaken up on Tuesday when he had a collision at first base. He should be fine.

The Nationals are starting lefty John Lannan.

Stanton puts on a show

JUPITER, Fla. — Josh Johnson faced Hanley Ramirez. Matt Dominguez ran with the first team in a number of infield drills, and Chris Coghlan got his first taste of playing center field.

stanton2-22.jpgThere were plenty of storylines to follow in the Marlins first full-squad workouts on Tuesday afternoon at the Roger Dean Stadium complex.

But the most jaw-dropping part of the day came on a back field during batting practice. Mike Stanton launched a number of mammoth drives well past the left field wall and near the town homes across the street.

In a group with Logan Morrison and Coghlan, Stanton put on a show for a small gathering. A couple of fans positioned outside the walls ran down the baseballs. One fan had at least three baseballs in each hand as he ran to gather even more Stanton drives.

Catcher Brett Hayes, who was in the group that followed Stanton, joked: “Save some baseballs for us, Mike.”

Other notable moments from Day One:

* In live batting practice, Johnson pitched to a group that included Ramirez. The two All-Stars faced each other, but it was pretty basic stuff as Johnson is working on his pitches, and Ramirez is getting his timing down. Johnson, like all the pitchers, was throwing behind a screen, while the hitters were under the “turtle” batting cage.

* Former Marlins bullpen coordinator Pierre Arsenault is now a scout in the organization. Arsenault, who was on Florida’s staff from 2002-10, watched Tuesday’s workouts.

* During infield drills, the starting unit was Gaby Sanchez at first, Omar Infante at second, Ramirez at short and Dominguez at third. Backing up at each position were Wes Helms (first), Emilio Bonifacio (second), Donnie Murphy (shortstop) and Greg Dobbs (third).

* Johnson, Chris Volstad and Javier Vazquez all threw live batting practice on Tuesday.

* Murphy, who is recovering from surgery to repair a dislocated right wrist, participated in field drills, and he faced live pitching. The team still plans on not overload Murphy in hitting too much early in camp.

* John Baker, returning from Tommy John surgery to his throwing arm, took part in live batting practice. Baker is on a throwing program, tossing off flat ground at 90 feet, and he is building up to 120 feet.

* Wednesday’s workouts begin at 10 a.m. ET, and they are open to the public.
