The 2015 Miami Marlins are excited to start their trek back to the playoffs this year, but they first have to deal with a number of teams also trying to train and get back into shape. Spring Training is a time to warm up and get ready for the real games in the comfort of Jupiter, Florida and other warm locales. For the Fish, it is a chance to try out their new roster and see how the players fit.
