When Marlins manager Mike Redmond finished his injury update before batting practice Tuesday, he smiled.

“We’re starting to move some dirt,” Redmond said. “That feels good.”

Yes, the Marlins are getting healthier — and thereby moving some dirt.

On Wednesday, slugger Giancarlo Stanton took live batting practice at Marlins Park for the first time since straining his right hamstring on April 30.

Redmond tossed the BP session and said Stanton was swinging the bat well.

“He looked good,” Redmond said, “like he was feeling all right. I didn’t ask him afterwards; I’m just going off the results. He was hitting them out. It’s another encouraging sign that he’s a little closer to being back on the field.”

Other position players who could be back in the coming weeks include Logan Morrison and Joe Mahoney.

Both are rehabbing injuries in Jupiter, with Morrison playing for the Single A Hammerheads of the Florida State League.

Redmond said Morrison — who has been out all season after having surgery on his right knee last year — would continue playing in Jupiter through the weekend before he reports to Double A Jacksonville on Monday.

Mahoney, who has a right hamstring strain, is expected to report to Triple A New Orleans on Sunday.

“We’re going to split them up because they’re ready to be out there in the field,” Redmond said. “I’ve still never seen this guy [Morrison] play in a game. I’m like the fans; I’m excited to see him play.”
