"It's a nice mix of veterans, and you've got some real exciting players," Lowell said. "I think it's a team fans will really enjoy watching."
A former All-Star and Gold Glove-winning third baseman, Lowell retired in 2010, after spending his final five seasons with the Red Sox.
From 1999-2005, the Miami native anchored third base for the Marlins and was a core player on the 2003 World Series team.
Lowell is the second Marlins alumnus to spend some time in uniform in camp. A few weeks ago, former All-Star catcher Charles Johnson paid a visit.
In his short stint in uniform, Lowell sees the makings of a club on the rise.
"When you look at who's going to make the roster and who is not, there aren't too many openings," the 41-year-old said. "I think that's a mark of a good team. The infield is basically set, and so is the outfield. There will be a couple of bullpen spots, and [a question about] who is going to be the utility guy."
This week, the Marlins put Lowell to work. After batting practice on Wednesday, Lowell and infield coach Perry Hill took promising third-base prospect Brian Anderson, a third-round Draft pick out of the University of Arkansas last year, to a back field to offer instruction.
As for the big league club, Lowell sees health as the key.
"Health-wise, if all those guys stay healthy, there is a great chance to have a real nice, consistent season," the 13-year big league veteran said. "If the pitchers do their job and hold the fort down, and if you're in the running, Jose Fernandez [returning from Tommy John surgery] in July might be the best trade acquisition without giving up anything. I think there is a lot to look forward to with the Marlins this season. I'm excited for them."
