Baseball is a marathon.
It's not easy cramming 162 games into six short months, and it's nearly impossible to play all 162 games with the same 25-man roster.
There's a reason why each organization has an active 25-man roster and a 40-man roster. If a team is going to make it through a season, it will have to, at some point, find more manpower.
In fact, the Marlins have already gone into their minor league system since the season began. On April 9, the Marlins recalled relief pitcher Arquimedes Caminero after they placed starting pitcher Jacob Turner on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right shoulder.
With more than five months left in the season, rest assured the Marlins will call up more players to join their major league team at some point this year. These players might be up for a cup of coffee before returning to the minors, or it might be the beginning of a long major league career.
That said, here are eight minor leaguers, in alphabetical order, who will see time with the Marlins this year.
