Marlins lineup vs. Cardinals

JUPITER, Fla. — Plans to start Chris Coghlan in center field in back-to-back Grapefruit League have been scrapped.

Due to tendinitis and inflammation in his right shoulder, Coghlan will be playing in Minor League games for at least a while. Emilio Bonifacio started in center field on Thursday against the Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium.

Initially, manager Edwin Rodriguez was set to go with another lineup, which included a number of backups. But Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante and Gaby Sanchez all approached the manager and said they wanted to play, and an adjustment was made.

“The regular players all came in and said they wanted to play,” Rodriguez said. “That was good to see.”

Josh Johnson will be making the start for the Marlins. Jake Westbrook is throwing for the Cardinals.

Marlins-Cardinals Saturday lineup

Mired in a season-long five-game losing streak, the Marlins are turning to their ace, Josh Johnson, in hopes of getting back on the winning track.

Jake Westbrook gets the start for St. Louis on Saturday night at Sun Life Stadium.

Gaby Sanchez (right hamstring) and Cody Ross (neck) are out of the lineup for the second straight day. Both are day-to-day. With an off day on Monday, there is a likelihood they both could be rested for the series before returning on Tuesday at Washington. Both are available to pinch-hit.
