JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Infielder Donovan Solano and outfielder Don Kelly have been told they will be on the Miami Marlins' opening-day roster.

Miami Marlins position analysis: Shortstop

While there are questions at first and second base this offseason, the area of the infield with the most certainty would be shortstop after a career year from Adeiny Hechavarria. The 25-year-old has appeared in 294 of 324 games over the past two seasons since being acquired in the 2012 blockbuster trade with the Toronto Blue Jays. Hechavarria played in 146 games this year.

Marlins position analysis: Second base

Second base wasn't supposed to be a revolving door in 2014 when the Miami Marlins signed veteran Rafael Furcal to a one-year, $3.5 million deal last offseason. But various leg injuries prevented the 36-year-old from re-energizing his career in South Florida. After missing 2013 with Tommy John surgery, Furcal sustained a hamstring strain during spring training in Jupiter, Fla. While...

No love: Cardinals' offense fires blanks in Miami

A 3-0 loss at Miami on Tuesday night gave the Cardinals their 11th shutout of the season, equaling their total for 2013. As you might expect, their other offensive numbers this season do not match up well with 2013, either. After 118 games, in fact, the comparison is rather lopsided: 2014: 62-56 record, 436 runs scored, .251/.317/.373. 2013: 68-50 record, 578 runs scored, .274/...
