Juan Uribe is available but isn’t in the Dodgers’ starting lineup.

Juan Uribe took batting practice prior to the Dodgers’ game against the Miami Marlins for the second straight day, but is not in Don Mattingly‘s starting lineup tonight. Justin Turner will get the start at third base for the third straight day.

Uribe looks healthy, but might be more than two days away from returning to the Dodgers’ starting lineup.

“We’re going to try to buy him as much time through the off-day, try to buy him to Arizona before I start him,” Mattingly said. “Everybody’s basically telling me he’s available to double-switch, to go into a game situation like that.”

Here are the full starting lineups for both teams:

Marlins:
Christian Yelich LF
Adeiny Hechavarria SS
Giancarlo Stanton RF
Casey McGehee 3B
Jarrod Saltalamacchia C
Garrett Jones 1B
Marcell Ozuna CF
Derek Dietrich 2B
Jacob Turner P

Dodgers:
Dee Gordon 2B
Yasiel Puig RF
Hanley Ramirez SS
Adrian Gonzalez 1B
Matt Kemp CF
Carl Crawford LF
Justin Turner 3B
Drew Butera C
Josh Beckett P
