Derek Jeter Says Marlins In Good Spot, Doing Exactly What They Set Out To Do

MIAMI (AP) — Speaking Tuesday at Marlins Park, Derek Jeter said he was about to jump in the car and head down to spring training, even though the Miami Marlins‘ camp is actually up in Jupiter, 90 miles north on Interstate 95.

Now in his fifth month on the job, Jeter acknowledged he’s still finding his bearings as the Marlins’ CEO.

The team opens camp Wednesday following a Jeter-led fire sale that purged the batting order of four starters, including NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton. The trades netted mostly prospects, making the immediate outlook even bleaker than usual for a team that hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2003.

But before heading to his first spring training since his final season with the New York Yankees in 2014, Jeter said his ownership group is on the path to long-term success.

“We’re in a good spot,” Jeter said. “We are doing exactly what we set out to do.”
