Marlins will allow players access for workouts: AP source

The team will allow players to pitch off a mound or hit in batting cages at their spring training complex beginning Tuesday.

MIAMI — The Miami Marlins will allow players on their 40-man roster access to their spring training complex to pitch off a mound or hit in batting cages beginning Tuesday, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.

The person confirmed the decision to the AP on condition of anonymity Monday because the Marlins made no announcement. The rest of the complex in Jupiter, Florida, will remain closed, the person said.

In Tampa Bay, Rays officials said that the team may have a plan in place later this week.

The optional workouts will be individual, with a staff member present, and those involved will abide by social distancing guidelines, the person said.

Major League Baseball is considering proposed methods to salvage a season delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. Plans have been formulated to possibly start the season in early July.
