Hechavarria scratched from lineup with soreness in throwing elbow

Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup after he began feeling discomfort in his throwing elbow during warm-up tosses.

Ed Lucas, the only other player to start at short for the Marlins this season back on May 21, took Hechavarria's spot. Hechavarria has started 72 of the 73 games the Marlins have played this season at shortstop.

Manager Mike Redmond didn't sound too concerned, though.

"He had a little flare-up with his elbow," Redmond said. "He's kind of had that recurring thing from last year with his elbow. Sometimes he comes in and it's a little sore. He just needs a day off. I'm not worried. Up to this point, he's had it one other time and we gave him the day off and he was fine the next day. I don't know if he did it hitting or throwing. He was complaining about it after his warm ups."
