Sometime today, Miami Marlins pitchers and catchers report to the Spring Training Complex in Jupiter, FL, in preparation for the upcoming slate of warm ups for the main event.
Pitchers and catchers, by the way, comprise nearly 60 percent of the players who are required today. There are 21 pitchers on the 40-man roster, joined by three catchers. Another four catchers will join the club for ST reps, along with 10 more pitchers.
That’s not to say the only players who will show up today are just pitchers and catchers. A lot of these players are as hard up for some baseball as we are here at Marlin Maniac.
