The Marlins recalled lefty reliever Dan Jennings from Triple-A New Orleans on Friday to fill the roster spot of Mike Dunn. Dunn was optioned to New Orleans after Thursday's game. Jennings and Randy Choate are the two lefties in Miami's pen.
Giancarlo Stanton on Friday was back in the cleanup spot for the first time since April 20.
"Right now, we need more offense," manager Ozzie Guillen said. "We're trying to make things happen. He's swinging at strikes. I think this kid is starting to learn how to be patient. He's looking for the right pitch."
Guillen is surprised to see how much Logan Morrison is struggling at the plate right now. Morrison is 2-for-31 in his last 10 games, and his average is down to .228 entering Friday.
"I think he's a way better hitter than what he's shown," the manager said.
Guillen's observation is Morrison is letting his struggles weigh on him.
"You know he's a good hitter," Guillen said. "I think right now, his mechanics, he's doing some stuff that don't help him. You can see if he makes an out in the first inning, you can see like, 'Wow, here we go again.' Take one at-bat at a time."
