ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Miami Marlins third baseman Hanley Ramirez has been scratched from the lineup after a ball hit him in the nose during batting practice in a cage. Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen replaced Ramirez with Donovan Solano in Friday night's game against Tampa Bay. "He's kind of dizzy right now," Guillen said about two hours before the game. "He should be ready (for Saturday). The trainers, they think it's nothing big." Ramirez is hitting .259 with 11 homers and 37 RBIs this season. Also, Miami recalled outfielder Scott Cousins from Triple-A New Orleans. He replaces outfielder Chris Coghlan, who was optioned to New Orleans after Wednesday night's game.

The Marlins' road trip got off to an awful start Friday, starting with a pregame injury to third baseman Hanley Ramirez and followed by an 11-0 loss at Tampa Bay.

Struggling Marlins fight to stay above .500

A .500 record used to be considered a success for the Florida Marlins. Now as the Miami Marlins, it's a disappointment. They may be hard-pressed to move back above the break-even mark against James Shields and the Tampa Bay Rays. With Hanley Ramirez possibly back in the lineup, the Marlins will try to overcome their struggles against Shields and end an eight-game skid versus...

Cousins' triple lifts Marlins over Rays in 15th

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Scott Cousins hit a tiebreaking RBI triple in the 15th inning and the struggling Miami Marlins edged the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 on Saturday.

Blame Marlins' skid on poor clutch hitting

Ozzie Guillen gives himself a C-plus at best for the job he has done with the Miami Marlins, and his lineup deserves an even lower grade. When it comes to clutch hitting, the Marlins flunk too many tests. They batted .127 (8 for 63) with runners in scoring position during a dismal homestand, which is the primary reason the Marlins went 1-8. They began last week in a virtual tie...

Marlins Park Clubhouse Offers Plenty of Space, Nice Chairs, Convenience (Video)

Marlins Park, the new home of the Miami Marlins, is a bit strange. With fish, a weird home run sculpture and lots of lime green to speak of, the ballpark definitely has a unique feel. Perhaps one of the best aspects of the new park, however, is the clubhouse. Even the visitors are treated to a nice looking area, which NESN recently discovered. Check out the video above for a complete...

Marlins in need of more offense against Rays

The bickering Miami Marlins are seeking a way out of a dismal stretch. The best way out may not be another weekend series against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Marlins will try to avoid both a ninth loss in 10 games overall and an eighth straight defeat in the Citrus Series when they and the Rays square off Friday night at Tropicana Field. Miami (32-31) fell 10-2 to Boston on Wednesday...

Marlins' hitting concerns deepen

A lack of clutch hitting has been an issue this year for the Miami Marlins. The Marlins are batting .242 -- 13th among the 16 National League teams -- including just .224 in June, last in the NL. Perhaps worse, Miami is batting just .218 with runners in scoring position, third-worst in the majors. "Very poor hitting with men on base," manager Ozzie Guillen said. ...
