MIAMI—The Miami Marlins’ celebrity manager was a bust, so they’re calling one up from the minors. Mike Redmond, who spent the past two years managing Class A teams in the Toronto Blue Jays’ system, was hired Thursday by the Marlins to replace Ozzie Guillen. A former major league catcher, Redmond had not interviewed for a big league job until he met with the Marlins last week. He’ll be introduced as their fifth manager since early 2010 at a news conference at their ballpark Friday.
