Marlins third baseman Hanley Ramirez was scratched from Miami's starting lineup late Friday afternoon after he was struck in the nose by a batted ball that bounced hard off a batting cage screen. Miami manager Ozzie Guillen said he was removed out of precaution, but he expected him back in time for Saturday night's second game of a three-game interleague series at Tampa Bay. Donovan Solano took Ramirez's place in the batting order. Solano will play third base and bat second.
