There have been years in his managerial career

JUPITER Randy Jones Jersey , Fla. (AP) — Don Mattingly has arrived for the first day of spring training without any mystery regarding who would be on the 25-man roster coming out of camp.This is not one of those years.And that’s just fine with the manager of the Miami Marlins, who is entering his fourth season — and the last under his current contract — with the club that is entering 2019 in a rebuilding mode that has no end in sight. Most pitchers and catchers took part in their first official workout of the spring on Wednesday, an unseasonably cool and drizzly day in South Florida.“I like the thought of our competition and the way we’re going,” Mattingly said. “It’s a competitive camp. I think guys react better when they have to compete, fight for things. We find out more about them and hopefully as time continues we just keep stacking up talent where everybody’s always fighting to have to show what they can do or there’s another guy wanting that spot.”The jerseys were new, a shade of blue that’s part of the team’s rebranded scheme. Many of the faces were new, most notably catcher Jorge Alfaro — the presumptive starter behind the plate after the Marlins got him in the trade that sent J.T. Realmuto to Philadelphia. But the approach, Mattingly said, won’t be that different than was the case in past spring trainings.“And if you probably looked at all 30 clubs, they’re doing similar things,” Mattingly said. “You just ask your guys to go do it better.”Mattingly averaged 89 wins in his five seasons managing the Los Angeles Dodgers. His three seasons in Miami have resulted in 79 , 77 and 63 wins respectively, a downward trend that likely can’t continue if he’s going to be back with the Marlins in 2020.Mattingly has repeatedly said he’s not worried about it, and reiterated Wednesday that not much really makes him anxious anymore. He understands where the Marlins are, and how this total rebuild of the organization — from Single-A ball to the majors and anything and everything in between — was necessary when the regime led by Derek Jeter took over.“It’s like everyone in this organization, on the baseball side or the business side: Everyone’s up for evaluation at the end of the year and we’ll see how we’re going to move forward,” said Jeter, the Marlins’ CEO. “Donnie’s under contract. I’ve known Donnie a long time. Played with Donnie … I’ve learned a lot from him throughout the years. But like everyone else in the organization, he’s under contract and he’ll be evaluated at the end of the year.”The first full-squad workout is set for Monday, but these five days to concentrate on pitchers and catchers is vital in Mattingly’s eyes.Miami had 13 pitchers start a game last year, and as many as seven of them figure to have a real shot at making the rotation coming out of spring. There are also some arms in the minors that Miami will take a long look at this spring.So decisions will need to be made, and Mattingly will have about six weeks to make the right ones before the games start to count.“There’s hopefully a number of guys that are showing that they’re capable Wil Myers Jersey ,” Mattingly said. “Every year you see pitching staffs come out of the blue, a bullpen or something that turns from being something people wouldn’t expect (to be good) to one of the best in baseball. I think we’ve got a number of good arms. We’ve got a number of guys who we feel have really good stuff.” MILWAUKEE (AP) — Lorenzo Cain fired the ball high into the air and jumped up and down in the outfield, yelling and shaking his head from side to side.“I let them know. Not today,” a grinning Cain said.Not today, indeed.Cain soared above the wall to rob Jose Martinez of a tying home run for the final out, lifting Christian Yelich and the Milwaukee Brewers over the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 on Thursday.With at least one Cardinals player in the bullpen already raising his arms to celebrate, Cain pulled back the pinch-hit drive by Martinez in right-center. A fired-up Cain and Yelich then started celebrating an opening day that looked a lot like Milwaukee’s run to the NL Championship Series last October.“I think we know our identity as a team, how we win games,” Yelich said. “That seems to be our formula.”Yelich got right back to work after winning the NL MVP award last season, putting Milwaukee ahead to stay with a three-run homer off Miles Mikolas in the third. The Miller Park crowd of 45,304 roared as Yelich glided around the bases.Mike Moustakas and pitcher Jhoulys Chacin also connected for the Brewers. Josh Hader retired five in a row before Cain’s play finished off the save.“These kinds of wins make baseball fun Rickey Henderson Jersey ,” Moustakas said.Kolten Wong homered twice for St. Louis and Harrison Bader also connected. The Cardinals blew a 3-0 lead in their fifth consecutive loss against the Brewers, including a three-game sweep last September that helped propel Milwaukee to the NL Central title.Paul Goldschmidt went 0 for 3 with three strikeouts and a walk in his first regular-season game for St. Louis since he was acquired in an offseason trade with Arizona. The All-Star slugger had a short conversation with plate umpire Gary Cederstrom after he looked at a called third strike in each of his first two at-bats.“It would have been nice to come back and win,” Goldschmidt said. “It was a great play by Cain there at the end.”Chacin (1-0) struck out seven in 5 1/3 innings in his third opening-day start. He also helped himself with two hits, singling and scoring on Yelich’s drive before hitting a 2-2 pitch from Mikolas into Milwaukee’s bullpen in left-center for his second career homer in the fifth.Mikolas (0-1), a surprise star last season when he went 18-4 in his first year with the Cardinals, allowed five runs and five hits in five innings.“I thought I made some good pitches but they hit my mistakes pretty hard,” he said.Wong’s second homer made it 5-4 in the seventh, but Milwaukee’s depleted bullpen held on. Hader struck out four, fanning Goldschmidt, Paul DeJong and Marcell Ozuna in the eighth and Dexter Fowler in the ninth.Hader was a key figure for the Brewers last year, and he became even more important when key relievers Jeremy Jeffress and Corey Knebel opened this season on the injured list. Jeffress is coming back from a sore right shoulder , but Knebel could be headed for season-ending elbow surgery.“Every guy is going to have to be ready and do what we do in any opportunity that we get,” Hader said.GOING DEEPEach run was scored via the long ball.The Cardinals got off to a fast start, scoring the first three runs on consecutive first-pitch homers by Wong and Bader in the second. Wong connected after Fowler reached on a two-out walk, and Bader hit a deep drive to left.The Brewers got one back when Moustakas went deep with two out in the bottom half of the inning.TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: 3B Matt Carpenter showed no sign of any trouble after he was bothered by back tightness at the end of spring training. He went 0 for 4 with a strikeout. … LHP Brett Cecil (Carpal Tunnel syndrome) was moved to the 60-day injured list to create a 40-man roster spot for RHP Merandy Gonzalez, who was claimed off waivers from San Francisco and optioned to Double-A Springfield.Brewers: Knebel said he will make a decision on his next course of action on Friday.He could have Tommy John surgery and then return at some point next year, or try to rehab the injury.UP NEXTYoung right-handers Jack Flaherty and Freddy Peralta get the ball when the series resumes Friday night. St. Louis is counting on the 23-year-old Flaherty to help anchor the rotation after he went 8-9 with a 3.34 ERA in 28 starts last year. Peralta, who turns 23 in June, won a spot in Milwaukee’s rotation during spring training. He went 6-4 with a 4.25 ERA in 16 appearances last season during his first year in the majors, including 14 starts.
