MIAMI -- Ozzie Guillen is back in the Miami Marlins' dugout.

After serving a five-game suspension, Guillen rejoined the team for Tuesday night's game against the Chicago Cubs. The always outspoken manager said he's not going to change but plans to steer clear of issues that aren't his business.

The team suspended Guillen after he praised Fidel Castro in a magazine interview. His comments angered Cuban Americans, who make up a large segment of the Marlins' fan base.

Guillen said he can't control whether the home fans boo him. He said he has been jeered before, but added that such a reception in this situation might be more embarrassing and hurt more.

Guillen said he hopes to repair damage done by winning games and being active in community outreach.
