Friday's lineup/Hanley Ramirez still out

Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez will miss a second straight game since injuring his left shoulder during Wednesday's game. Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said before Friday night's game against the Phillies that Ramirez is "doing better than yesterday."

"For me to say he's going to miss the whole series, I'm not there yet," Gonzalez said.

It remains to be seen whether Ramirez will be ready on Saturday. Ramirez was icing his shoulder with a big ace bandage wrapped around it during pregame. Rookie Cameron Maybin again will bat leadoff and play centerfield, and Alfredo Amezaga will be at shortstop again while Ramirez is out.
