Marlins general manager Dan Jennings will transition from the front office to the dugout to replace recently-fired skipper Mike Redmond.
Redmond was let go on Sunday afternoon, just minutes after the Braves finished off a three-game sweep of the Marlins in Miami. Bench coach Rob Leary also got canned, and advance scout Mike Goff is going to move from the front office to the dugout with Jennings to fill that spot. It's all very odd, but we've come to expect odd things from Jeffrey Loria's teams. Jennings has zero managerial experience at the professional level. He did coach baseball at Davidson High School in Mobile, Alabama back in the '80s. Mike Hill and Mike Berger will now run the Marlins' front office. May 18 - 8:56 AM

The Marlins announced Sunday that they have fired manager Mike Redmond.

Bench coach Rob Leary was also let go. There were rumors late last month that Redmond's job might be in jeopardy, but owner Jeffrey Loria gave the skipper a vote of confidence a week later. He obviously changed his mind, though, canning Redmond just minutes after they were nearly no-hit by the Braves' Shelby Miller. Redmond went 155-207 in three seasons with the Marlins, which includes a 16-22 mark in 2015. The Marlins will announce Redmond's replacement on Monday.

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria gave his first public endorsement of manager Mike Redmond on Sunday.

Rumors swirled early last week that Redmond was already on the hot seat, but the Marlins swept the Nationals over the weekend and have rattled off five straight victories. Funny how things change. "He's the manager. Period," Loria told Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. "All teams go through bad moments. Ours came early."

According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, Marlins manager Mike Redmond is already on the hot seat.

We're only two weeks into the 2015 season, but the Marlins carried lofty expectations after an active winter and their record right now is 3-10. Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has a history of aggressive and sometimes head-scratching managerial changes. According to Spencer's report, one possible candidate to take over for Redmond is Wally Backman, the current manager for the Mets' Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas.
