Dan Uggla was out on the field Tuesday, sprinting and taking grounders to test his sprained left ankle. Afterward, he said the ankle felt "strong" and predicted he could be ready to return to second base in a few days. "It's really any day now," he said. "It kind of tells me I've turned the corner on it."
With Matt Treanor going on the disabled list with a strained left hip, the Marlins called up catcher John Baker from Triple A Albuquerque. Paul Hoover is behind the plate tonight and manager Fredi Gonzalez said Baker would start on Wednesday.
