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.

Maybin leading off Sunday

Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez is changing things up at the top of the order. With Chris Coghlan struggled, Cameron Maybin is leading off on Sunday in the series finale with the Phillies.

The Phillies are starting left-hander Cole Hamels.

Gonzalez said Maybin offers more speed at the top of the lineup. The switch at leadoff will be more than one game. Coghlan is hitless in last 15 at-bats. Also before the game, Ronny Paulino was scrated due to a tight right quad.

Robertson starting Thursday

Looking to get Nate Robertson into the rotation earlier, the Marlins made the move on Sunday to start the left-hander on Thursday in Game 3 of the season. Robertson will face the Mets in New York, instead of throwing on Saturday as originally slated.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez made the announcement on Sunday. Anibal Sanchez, who was lined up to pitch on Thursday, now becomes the fifth starter. Sanchez will start either on Saturday or Sunday at home against the Dodgers.

Chances are it will be Sunday.

Josh Johnson, the Opening Day starter, probably will pitch on his normal fifth day. The Marlins have flexibility with Saturday’s start because they are off on Tuesday. The off day means Johnson could pitch in two of the team’s first five games.

Robertson is the lone lefty in the Marlins rotation, and he will split up the four right-handers.

Marlins roster set

With no more exhibition games to play, the Marlins on Saturday made their final moves to set their active and 40-man rosters.

Following an 8-7 loss to their low Class A Greensboro affiliate, the Marlins announced several transactions.

Outfielder Brett Carroll was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique. Carroll is on the DL, retroactive to March 26. Reliever Brian Sanches, who suffered a hamstring injury on Friday night, also will start the season on the 15-day disabled list.

The Marlins also selected the contracts of infielders Brian Barden and Mike Lamb. Reliever Jose Veras also had his contract selected.

These moves set the 25-man roster.

The 40-man roster also has been set, as right-hander Cristhian Martinez and outfielder Jai Miller were designated for assignment. The roster now is at 40.

The Marlins now head to New York to get ready for Opening Day on Monday against the Mets at Citi Field.

The team will work out at Citi Field at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.

For now, outfielder Cody Ross is on the active roster. Ross, recovering from a mild right calf strain, is hopeful to be in the Opening Day lineup. As a precaution, outfielder Scott Cousins will also head to New York, just in case a last minute decision is made to place Ross on the disabled list.

The Marlins roster includes 13 position players and 12 pitchers.

The position players are: Ronny Paulino, John Baker, Gaby Sanchez, Dan Uggla, Jorge Cantu, Hanley Ramirez, Chris Coghlan, Cameron Maybin, Ross, Wes Helms, Emilio Bonifacio, Barden and Lamb.

The pitchers are: Josh Johnson, Ricky Nolasco, Anibal Sanchez, Chris Volstad, Nate Robertson, Leo Nunez, Veras, Wood, Burke Badenhop, Clay Hensley, Renyel Pinto and Dan Meyer.

Designating Miller wasn’t completely unexpected. The Marlins Triple-A outfield will feature Bryan Petersen, Cousins and Jason Lane. And the organization has outfield depth at the Double-A level, with top prospect Mike Stanton in right field.

VandenHurk, Wood optioned

Shortly after the Marlins beat the Nationals, 9-5, on Tuesday, the Marlins made a roster move that completes how the pitching staff will shake down.

Rick VandenHurk and Tim Wood were each optioned to Triple-A New Orleans. VandenHurk will be in the New Orleans rotation, while Wood will pitch in relief.

The transactions came a few hours after Florida obtained lefty Nate Robertson from the Tigers in exchange for lefty prospect Jay Voss.

The starting rotation will be — Josh Johnson, Ricky Nolasco, Anibal Sanchez, Chris Volstad and Robertson.

Clay Hensley is making the team as a long reliever, instead of the fifth starter.

Barring any other moves, the bullpen will feature: Leo Nunez, Brian Sanches, Jose Veras, Renyel Pinto, Dan Meyer, Burke Badenhop and Hensley.
