Right-hander Jose Urena, who is vying for a spot in the rotation, started in the Marlins' 9-6 loss to the Twins on Monday, going one inning, allowing two runs on a home run and a walk. Left-hander Justin Nicolino followed Urena to the mound and was roughed up for five runs (four earned) in one-third of an inning. But manager Don Mattingly said he is not going to let early spring games color his judgment.

9 Oscar-nominated movies we wish were about baseball
From baseball's brightest stars to the next great fantasy steal lurking on the Marlins' depth chart, everything you need to know is one click away.
On paper, the void is obvious. The Marlins have a rotation without a true ace. What's often overlooked, in the eyes of the organization, is the projected starting five has a track record of durability.
Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna trained in the offseason with big league talent at Robinson Cano's baseball academy in San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic.

Bobby Bonilla caps 10-pitch AB with walk-off GS
As a submarine-style pitcher, Marlins right-hander Brad Ziegler basically gives batters an upside-down view. His unorthodox delivery often causes his throwing hand to nearly scrape the mound before he flings sinkerball pitches that regularly find their mark down in the zone. "He gives a different angle," manager Don Mattingly said. "It's a different view. You don't see it very often. It's kind of like the knuckleballer. Coming up with a gameplan for a guy like that is different than 98 percent of the guys."
Finding consistency with the bullpen from year to year is a task, but Marlins manager Don Mattingly has all the confidence that former Boston Red Sox reliever Junichi Tazawa can fit in with a new team in 2017.
The offseason saw the Marlins trade even more prospects, most notably right-hander flame-thrower Luis Castillo, who was sent to the Reds with toolsy outfielder Isaiah White and big league reliever Austin Brice. Those trades haven't completely depleted Miami's system of impact talent, though.
A.J. Ellis may be a newcomer to the Marlins, but the veteran catcher is certainly no stranger to the organization.

A new batch of novelty license plates were made after Ichiro Suzuki became the 30th player in Major League history to reach 3,000 hits. It's just part of "Ichiro Mania" that still exists in his native Japan.
Early Saturday morning, Dee Gordon ripped open the package with the same enthusiasm he exudes after receiving a birthday present. His new infield gloves arriving is reason for the Marlins' second baseman to rejoice.
Marlins manager Don Mattingly, a career .307 hitter during his 14-year career with the Yankees, takes a hands-on approach in Spring Training. To get a better feel for how a pitcher is throwing, the former All-Star first baseman occasionally steps up to the plate.
An attention-to-detail message is already being engrained in the Marlins. It's all part of the "Little Things Matter" theme that manager Don Mattingly and his staff are preaching.

Manager Don Mattingly served up a hint as to who may take the mound for the Marlins on Opening Day. Edinson Volquez, no stranger to big games, could get the nod on April 3 at Washington.
The Marlins don't need any reminders that they're playing a game. When they have any doubts, all the players need to do is look at the No. 16 patches on their jerseys. "Play like Jose" is a theme many within the organization emphasized as they opened Spring Training on Tuesday at the Roger Dean Stadium complex.
