Marlins believe they're poised to end playoff drought

MIAMI (AP) Two transactions midway through spring training that drew little notice heralded significant progress for the Miami Marlins.

Top pitching prospects Jose Urena and Justin Nicolino were optioned to the minor leagues - moves reflecting the franchise's improved depth of talent. This season, for a change, the front office doesn't feel compelled to rush youngsters like Urena and Nicolino to the majors.

"In previous years they would probably already be in the big leagues," president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. "We've really tried to change that, be fair to the player and allow them to have the necessary growing pains in the minor leagues so when they do get to the big leagues, they can hit the ground running."
