Ed Lucas doubled, singled and walked against the Phillies on Thursday.
Playing against lefties, Lucas has gone 12-for-36 with a homer in 13 games since coming off the disabled list on April 29. It doesn't give him much in the way of fantasy value, but he's a good story and he's worth rooting for. May 22 - 4:02 PM

In his first game of the season, Ed Lucas went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored against the Braves on Tuesday.

Lucas missed nearly the first month of the season due to a broken left hand, but he returned in style. The second baseman had three singles, including an RBI single for the first Marlins run of the game. He came around to score on Giancarlo Stanton's home run one batter later.

Marlins activated INF Ed Lucas from the 15-day disabled list.

Lucas, who broke his left hand when he was hit by a pitch during spring training, hit .429 (6-for-14) with two RBI and a 2/2 K/BB ratio over three rehab games with High-A Jupiter. He'll serve in a utility role with the Marlins.

Ed Lucas will have surgery on Wednesday to insert a pin into his broken left hand.

Lucas suffered the injury last Thursday when he was hit in the hand by a pitch. While an initial report said he would miss around a month, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com hears that he will be out 5-7 weeks.
Apr 1 - 3:59 PM

Ed Lucas is expected to be sidelined for four weeks after having a pin surgically placed in his broken left hand on Wednesday.

Lucas sustained the injury last Thursday after he had learned earlier in the day he had made the Opening Day roster. He'll operate in a utility role once healthy.
Mar 31 - 11:04 PM

Marlins placed INF Ed Lucas on the 15-day disabled list with a broken left hand.

Lucas sustained the injury on Thursday after being hit by a pitch during Grapefruit League play. He had made the Marlins Opening Day roster and was expected to function in a utility role before the injury.
Mar 30 - 4:41 PM

Ed Lucas will likely miss four to six weeks with a broken left hand, according to Marlins manager Mike Redmond.

Lucas suffered the broken hand after being hit by a pitch on Thursday, just hours after he'd been told he made the club as a utility infielder. Donovan Solano, who was told he hadn't made the club, will take Lucas' spot on the roster. Lucas should be back with the club sometime in mid-May.
Mar 28 - 9:19 PM

X-rays have shown a break in Ed Lucas' left hand.

Lucas was removed from Thursday's Grapefruit League game after he was hit in the hand by a pitch. No word on how much time he's expected to miss, but he's obviously headed for the DL to begin the year.
Mar 27 - 4:41 PM

Ed Lucas was removed from a Grapefruit League game on Thursday after taking a pitch off his hand.

Cruel timing for Lucas, who was told Thursday morning that he had made the Marlins' Opening Day roster. X-rays were taken and the Fish should soon have an update.
Mar 27 - 3:59 PM

Ed Lucas has earned a spot on the Marlins' roster.

Lucas will function as a utility infielder for the Fish, backing up third base, shortstop, second base, and even first base. He batted .333/.389/.515 in the Grapefruit League to beat out Donovan Solano for the role.

Ed Lucas was removed from Thursday's Grapefruit League game with a tight left hamstring.

Lucas is considered day-to-day and should be back near 100 percent health by early next week. He is trying to win a backup infield job this spring in Marlins camp.
Mar 13 - 2:32 PM

Ed Lucas ripped a go-ahead solo homer in the 10th inning of Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

Lucas, who also had a single earlier in the game, took Cesar Jimenez deep over the left field fence. The career minor leaguer has received plenty of playing time for the Marlins this season but has hit only .250/.305/.334.

Ed Lucas went 0-for-4 on Monday, leaving him with a .202 average and a 23/4 K/BB ratio in 84 at-bats since the All-Star break.

Lucas has started 21 of the last 22 games anyway. He's mostly playing third base, but he's also getting starts at first when Logan Morrison sits. It's a nice story that he's in the majors -- the 31-year-old Dartmouth product was a career minor leaguer until the Marlins called him up at the end of May -- but he's getting way too much playing time right now.

Ed Lucas went 2-for-5 and hit his second homer against the Rockies on Monday.

Lucas is a nice story as a 31-year-old making his major league debut, but as a corner infielder with very little power, he's not a particularly useful player. Of course, given that the third base alternative right now is Placido Polanco, the Marlins aren't really hurting themselves by playing him.
