After getting off to a 16-22 start this season, the Miami Marlins decided to make a change in the dugout Sunday, firing manager Mike Redmond and bench coach Rob Leary.
CBS Sports' MLB Twitter account reported the firings, and the Marlins confirmed the news minutes later:
Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal provided some additional context on the move:
Per Joe Frisaro of MLB.com, the Marlins will name Redmond's replacement Monday morning.
Bob Nightengale of USA Today noted the Marlins are also riding out a difficult storm right now:
ESPN's Buster Olney weighed in on one potential name who could be a strong fit for the position:
As CBS Sports mentioned, the Marlins were one out away from being no-hit by Atlanta Braves pitcher Shelby Miller on Sunday before Justin Bour lined a single up the middle. It wound up being a memorable finale for Redmond, though not the one he was expecting.
The team entered the season with high expectations after signing Giancarlo Stanton to a long-term extension and adding Mat Latos and Dan Haren to the pitching staff.
The Marlins hired Redmond following the 2012 season, and he compiled a 155-207 mark in two-plus seasons at the helm. Last September, Miami gave the 44-year-old former MLB catcher an extension through 2017.
