Mike Redmond feels whole again.
The manager not only saw the return of three of his regulars on Saturday, but was looking forward to Sunday when two more — Giancarlo Stanton and Steve Cishek — rejoin the club.
“Even though it’s just a couple of guys, it thins you out,” Redmond said of a roster depleted by injuries and the World Baseball Classic. “We’re down to the last couple of weeks and it’s nice to have those guys back in camp. Now I feel a whole lot better.”
Placido Polanco, who has been out since March 1 with an oblique strain, started at third base against the Mets on Saturday. Greg Dobbs, who last played on Feb. 24, received five at bats in a minor league game. And Henderson Alvarez was back on the mound for the Marlins for the first time since leaving to play for Venezuela in the WBC.
