The Florida Marlins have fired manager Fredi Gonzalez, naming Edwin Rodriguez his replacement, but only on an interim basis.
Rodriguez has spent the past one-and-a-half seasons as manager of Triple-A New Orleans.
The team also said Wednesday, it would be dismissing bench coach Carlos Tosca and hitting coach Jim Presley.
Gonzalez was 276-279 in his three-plus years as Marlins manager. Sitting at 34-36, the Marlins began the day fourth in the NL East, 7.5 games behind the first-place Atlanta Braves.
