JUPITER – The Miami Marlins are taking a step closer to returning to baseball.

The team will allow members of the 40-man roster to return to the Spring Training facility in Jupiter, as was first reported by radio host Andy Slater.

The team confirmed to Local 10 that players can either throw off the mound of hit in a batting cage.

Workouts for the players are optional.

This will begin on Tuesday.

All sessions are closed to fans and the media.

Meanwhile, MLB’s Players Association and Owners are trying to work out a deal for a possible 2020 season.
