Major League Baseball is permitting each team to bring up to 75 players to spring training camp this year. As of Wednesday, the Miami Marlins are expecting 72 (not including right-hander Jeff Brigham who’s been placed on the 60-day injured list). Over the next six weeks, they’ll gradually trim down to a 26-man Opening Day roster.
Most of the 32 non-roster invitees had been announced at various points over the last two months. The new (presumably final) wave of players is comprised of prospects: catcher Cameron Barstad, left-handers Jake Eder and Zach King, outfielder Víctor Víctor Mesa and right-hander Cody Poteet. Barstad, who turned 20 years old on Nov. 29, is the youngest player in Marlins major league camp.
The Marlins have also provided updated uniform numbers for all players. Many of the notable changes were covered here on Fish Stripes previously, like Sixto Sánchez going from No. 73 to No. 45 and Jazz Chisholm going from No. 70 to No. 2. But now we can see the details for veteran newcomers like Adam Duvall (No. 14) and Dylan Floro (No. 36).
