Lineups (and other tidbits) -- Marlins/D-Backs (Friday)

  Josh_johnson                                 Josh Johnson could be back sooner than expected. He is scheduled to throw Tuesday for Double A Carolina, after which the Marlins will decide whether to activate him from the disabled list and insert him into the starting rotation. At most, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez, Johnson would receive two more rehab starts in the minors before re-joining the Marlins.


                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Tommy Hutton is feeling under the weather and won't be in the booth for Friday night's television broadcast. But Rich Waltz won't be forced to go solo. He'll be joined in the booth on a rotating basis by president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest (innings 1 through 4), president David Samson (innings 5 and 6) and general manager Michael Hill (7 through 9).

              Remember, no cheering in the press box (or broadcast booth).
