Hanley hurting, out of lineup

Hanely Ramirez winched in pain several times while swinging the bat in Tuesday’s 5-2 win over the Mets.

On Wednesday, Ramirez was out of the lineup again with a sore left elbow. The elbow has bothered the three-time All-Star shortstop for about six weeks. He had missed four straight games prior to Tuesday.

Now, it is unclear when he will play again. Ozzie Martinez started at shortstop on Wednesday, while Logan Morrison batted third.

The Marlins are shorthanded in the infield because Emilio Bonifacio is nursing a tight left hamstring. He won’t be ready for at least two more days.

Florida concludes its homestand on Wednesday with Alex Sanabia starting against New York’s Jon Niese.

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.

Morrison sets team rookie record

Logan Morrison appeared in his 47 MLB game on Saturday night, and already the 23-year-old has set a Marlins’ rookie record.

With his first-inning double off Chicago’s Casey Coleman, Morrison extended his streak of reaching base safely to 37 games. It tops the previous mark of 36 set by Hanley Ramirez in 2006.

The streak is reaching either by hit, walk or hit by pitch.

The franchise record is 46 set by Luis Castillo during 2002, the year he set a franchise record with his 35-game hitting streak.

Marlins consecutive games reaching safely

* Luis Castillo, 46 (4/25/02-6/21/02)
* Kevin Millar, 43 (8/10/02-9/28/02)
* Logan Morrison, 37 (8/7/10-current)
* Cliff Floyd, 37 (4/30/00-6/11/00)
* Hanley Ramirez, 36 (7/27/06-9/3/06)

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.

Double-A Jacksonville advances

Matt Dominguez, one of the Marlins’ top prospects, turned in a big night on Sunday to help the Jacksonville Suns advance to the Southern League championship series.

Dominguez belted a two-run homer and added a two-run triple in the Suns’ 8-3 win over Mobile in the South Division championships.

The Suns claimed the South Division crown, taking the series, 3-1.

Double-A Jacksonville will now face North Division champion Tennessee in the best-of-five series beginning on Tuesday.

Jacksonville looks to repeat as the Southern League champions.

In 2009, the club won the title with a squad that featured Mike Stanton and Logan Morrison.

Marlins rookie slugger Mike Stanton opened the season with the Suns. He belted 21 homers there before getting called up on June 8.

Morrison opened this year at Triple-A New Orleans. The 23-year-old now is the Marlins left fielder.
