The Miami Marlins had high hopes for center fielder Chris Coghlan this time last year. He was just two years removed from being the NL Rookie of the Year, but struggled last year and may not even make the team this season.
For the first time since they were renamed, the entire Miami Marlins roster will show up in Jupiter to start spring training for the upcoming 2012 season Sunday.

Chris Coghlan hit a go-ahead, bases-loaded triple in the seventh inning to lead the Florida Marlins to a 6-4 victory over Washington on Sunday as 2011 spring training nears the end.
The St. Louis Cardinals got off to a terrific start thanks to Albert Pujols and Chris Carpenter. Ryan Franklin just couldn’t close it out.
