Stanton in lineup vs. Red Sox

JUPITER, Fla. — On a day their third base position became unsettled, the Marlins solidified themselves in right field.

For the first time in Grapefruit League play, Mike Stanton is in the lineup, playing right field and batting cleanup on Thursday against the Red Sox at Roger Dean Stadium.

Stanton, 21, has been out with a strained right quad, which he suffered on Feb. 27 in a scrimmage against the University of Miami.

“With Michael back, that bottom half of our lineup looks stronger with him in the middle,” manager Edwin Rodriguez said.

Earlier on Thursday, Matt Dominguez was reassigned to Minor League camp. Donnie Murphy and Emilio Bonifacio will get looks at third base until the season begins.

Javier Vazquez will pitch for Florida on Thursday, while Clay Buchholz will throw for the Red Sox.
