MIAMI (AP) -- Tino Martinez has been hired as the Miami Marlins' hitting coach and will work with new manager Mike Redmond. Martinez, a first baseman in the majors for 16 years, has been a New York Yankees special assistant and worked an analyst for the YES Network. Martinez had a career average of .271 with 339 home runs for the Yankees, Mariners, Cardinals and Rays. Redmond landed his first big league managerial job last week when he was hired to replace Ozzie Guillen. The Marlins this year batted .244, the worst average in franchise history, and scored the fewest runs per game since their first year in 1993. Eduardo Perez was the Marlins' hitting coach in 2012.
