Marlins: Teams may need a month to get ready to play again

There is no timetable yet when the Miami Marlins or the other 29 Major League teams will once again take infield practice, but now there is some idea of how long it will take for teams to prepare for the start of the season.

Per a story on, “With no sign of when training camps can resume, Blue Jays president Mark Shapiro says he thinks Major League Baseball would need at least a month of workouts and exhibition games before regular-season play can begin.”

The Marlins participated in 20 Spring Training games and finished the shortened season with a 12-6-2 record before the decision was made to halt all games and close training facilities due to the coronavirus outbreak.
