What we learned from first day of Marlins Spring Training

Officially kicking off Spring Training on Wednesday, Marlins manager Don Mattingly met with media members in Jupiter. We also got a closer look at the team’s pitchers and catchers in action, plus a handful of other position players who reported to camp early.

Here are the main takeaways:

  • Injury-free! Elsewhere in the majors, there were veterans already being ruled out for Opening Day and even some players being placed on the 60-day injured list. No such setbacks for the Marlins (yet).
  • Craig Mish of Swings and Mishes noted that non-roster invitee Matt Kemp is getting practice reps at first base.
