Marlins' Derek Dietrich: Heads to bench Thursday

Dietrich is not in the lineup Thursday against the Dodgers, Joe Frisaro of reports.

With southpaw Hyun-Jin Ryu taking the mound for the Dodgers, Dietrich will head to the bench as Christian Colon makes his first start at third base for the Marlins. While Dietrich has served as the everyday third baseman with Martin Prado (hamstring) and Miguel Rojas (thumb) on the DL, he could see his role shift into a platoon with Colon, who was claimed off waivers Tuesday.
