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.

Florida moved to 34-36 following Tuesday night’s win over the Baltimore Orioles. Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria says he’s making the change because he believes the team can, “do better and be better.”

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.
