JUPITER, Fla. – Jose Reyes was hitless in three at-bats in his spring debut for the Miami Marlins, who lost 3-1 to the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday.
Reyes was part of an offseason overhaul for Miami. The speedy shortstop agreed to a $106 million, six-year contract with the Marlins over the winter, leaving the New York Mets in free agency.
Tigers starter Rick Porcello pitched two scoreless innings in his first spring game. The right-hander, who went 14-9 a year ago, allowed one hit and threw 16 of 27 pitches for strikes.
Austin Jackson had a pair of hits for the Tigers.
Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton went 1 for 3.
