New Marlins hitting coach Barry Bonds is excited to work with outfielder Marcell Ozuna, according to Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald.

Marlins executive Michael Hill said new hitting coach Barry Bonds is already immersed in the job, studying tape of Marlins hitters. Word is, he’s excited about working with Marcell Ozuna, among others.

Robert Andino received an invitation to Spring Training and could win a spot on Miami's bench.

Two Marlins have their own emojis on the MLB Clubhouse app:

All eyes will be on Ichiro Suzuki this season as he attempts to reach 3,000 career hits.

Tyler Kolek is reportedly working on improving his off-speed pitches:

But as so many power pitchers have learned, overpowering stuff alone doesn't guarantee success in the pros. Sometimes there are growing pains, and for Kolek, he's still refining his mechanics and developing his secondary pitches.

Miami is still hoping to add another starting pitcher this winter.

The Marlins released images of their Spring Training gear last week:

Chen took to Twitter to note he will miss playing for the Orioles.

Should the Marlins sign Tyler Clippard? Is he completely healthy?

Jonathan Lucroy could have a role with the Marlins if the club considers adding him.
