Following the Marlins being shutout by the Braves 6-0 today, Miami management announced some new changes, including the firing of manager Mike Redmond, as well as the firing of bench coach Rob Leary.
This comes after reports earlier in the season that said that owner Jeffrey Loria was considering replacing Redmond following the Marlins terrible 1-6 start. They have rebounded since then, going 15-16. Despite this, Loria likely wasn't impressed with Miami's performance.
Redmond has been the Marlins manager for the past three seasons, guiding the team to improvement in 2014, finishing them fourth in the NL East with a 77-85 record. That serves as an improvement from 2013, when they went 62-100.
The Marlins will officially announce their next manager on Monday in a press conference at 11:00 A.M. eastern. Brett Butler, Bo Porter, Wally Backman, and Jeff Conine have been connected to the job. Conine was reportedly going to be the Marlins next manager, but the club insists otherwise.
