Every spring, during the downtime between the full squad reporting to Jupiter and the beginning of the Grapefruit League schedule, we get Marlins Photo Day! The 2020 edition took place Wednesday morning.

The following photos were captured by Mark Brown of Getty Images and Jim Rassol of USA Today.

This past offseason featured tons of player movement, so let’s get familiar with the new faces who are in strong contention for spots on the Opening Day active roster:
