JUPITER, Fla. — After 11 days of drills, the Marlins are finally ready to play some games.

Miami on Saturday is opening its Grapefruit League season, facing the Cardinals at 1:05 p.m. ET at Roger Dean Stadium.

The Marlins are starting John Maine, a non-roster invitee competing for the fifth starter spot.

“These workouts have been great,” first-year manager Mike Redmond said. “Everybody has been working hard, getting their work in. There has been great energy out there. I’ve been very happy with the way we’ve approached these last eight days or so. But when you start talking about evaluating guys, it’s when they get in the game situations, and you see a different uniform. That’s when you really see what you’ve got. That’s what I’m really excited for, to play these games and see these guys.”
