Marlins? shortstop JT Riddle?s chances of being available by Opening Day are starting to look a little more realistic.
Riddle, who has been hitting in minor-league games in recent days on the back fields of Roger Dean Stadium, played shortstop for the first time in a game since last July when he hurt his left labrum and eventually underwent season-ending shoulder surgery.
Riddle, who started 61 games last season for the Marlins as a rookie, considered the three innings he played Saturday a major step in his rehab.
“Today was a big hurdle to clear to get out there,” Riddle said.
