Uggla (hamstring) scratched from lineup

CHICAGO -- Turns out there will be one more change to the Marlins' lineup today. Second baseman Dan Uggla has been scratched with a tight left hamstring.

Uggla will be replaced at second by Emilio Bonifacio, who just took a series of grounders there from infield coach Andy Fox. Catcher Ronny Paulino will now move up to the fifth spot and Wes Helms will bat sixth and play third.

Although I'm not sure, I'm guessing Uggla likely tweaked his hammy stretching out for the final out in the fourth Friday on a groundball to Alfredo Amezaga at short. Uggla is 3 for 17 on this current road trip with one RBI.
