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.
