[1]Veteran P John Maine begins comeback with Marlins

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — John Maine sees an opportunity with the Miami Marlins as his way back to the majors after a two-year absence.

He was sidelined in July 2010 after undergoing arthroscopic shoulder surgery. He signed a minor-league deal in December with the rebuilding Marlins.

The 31-year-old Maine will start Miami’s spring training opener on Saturday afternoon against the St. Louis Cardinals. He’s competing for the fifth spot in the Marlins rotation.

The veteran right-hander was 41-36 with a 4.35 ERA in seven seasons with the Baltimore Orioles and New York Mets. He pitched on minor-league deals with Colorado, Boston and the New York Yankees the past two years.

Maine would join Ricky Nolasco in adding experience to a rotation expected to include young hurlers Jacob Turner, Nathan Eovaldi and Henderson Alvarez.
