Getting healthy

A rash of injuries over the last few weeks, coupled with the Marlins turning over their bullpen, left the Zephyrs with a lot of players from the lower levels in the system seeing their first Triple-A action. That is starting to change, as Scott Cousins has been activated from the disabled list and is in tonight’s lineup.

Also coming off the DL is left-hander Sean West, a graduate of Shreveport’s Captain Shreve High School. West is one of the best young arms in the Marlins system, but battled injuries throughout spring training and spent most of the season’s first two months getting back. He’s on the mound tonight making his Triple-A debut, as he pitched at Double-A and in the big leagues last year.

Tonight’s lineup behind West:

LF Petersen
2B Guzman
1B Morrison
DH Luna
SS Murphy
C   Davis
RF Cousins
3B Mitchell
CF Mattison

P   West
