NEW YORK -- Hanley Ramirez will test his sore groin during batting practice today at Citi Field, but he remains a day or two away from returning to the starting lineup. Fredi Gonzalez said Ramirez might be able to pinch-hit tonight, and could remain in the game at that point.
Alfredo Amezaga is another story. It'll be at least 7 to 10 days before the utility player will be ready to come off the disabled list (left knee bruise). He has not been hitting or running, and would need to play in at least three or four minor-league games before the Marlins would consider adding him to their roster.
Marlins: 1. Emilio Bonifacio, ss; 2. Chris Coghlan, lf; 3. Dan Uggla, 2b; 4. Jorge Cantu, 1b; 5. John Baker, c; 6. Cody Ross, cf; 7. Jeremy Hermida, rf; 8. Wes Helms, 3b; 9. Sean West, p.
