Saturday lineup, plus a few pregame notes

CHICAGO - As expected, Hanley Ramirez is back in today's lineup. He is taking grounders from Andy Fox here before the game.

The lineup: 1. Bonifacio 3B, 2. Hermida LF, 3. Ramirez SS, 4. Cantu 1B, 5. Uggla 2B, 6. Paulino C, 7. Ross RF, 8. Maybin CF, 9. Sanchez P.

A few quick notes...

> Manager Fredi Gonzalez told us Hayden Penn will be available today after rolling his ankle Friday attempting to back up a throw.

> Andrew Miller has had a few real good bullpen sessions and will likely get sent down Tuesday for a start in the minors. Miller threw around 60 pitches before today's game in a simulated setting (taking breaks between pitches). He said the rest along with an injection for a strained oblique muscle has helped him tremendously.

Graham Taylor will still likely get one more start before Miller returns to the fifth spot in the rotation.

Hayden Penn looked okay yesterday after "rolling his ankle" He should have been left in the game to at least finish the inning, which would have prevented Burke Badenhop from giving up that Granny to ruin the games for us. But, if you want to call it a smart, cautious move by Fredi, go ahead. But I just tally it up under the many mistakes Fredi has made as a manager to ruin games for us that we had well in hand.
