The Miami Marlins have named their new manager according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, and it's former Marlins catcher Mike Redmond. Redmond gets a three year deal in Miami as his first managing job. The 41-year old Redmond began his career with the Marlins after being signed as an amateur free agent in 1992. He made his debut in the majors in 1998, and was a member of the 2003 World Series winning team under Jack McKeon. His best season was 2002, when in 89 games, Redmond had a .759 OPS and contributed 2.2 fWAR to the team. Redmond spent the second half of his career in the AL Central, with five years in Minnesota and one in Cleveland before the Indians released him in July of 2010. Since retiring at the end of the 2010 season, Redmond has managed in the minor leagues. He managed the Lansing Lugnuts of the Midwest League in 2011, finishing 77-60 and losing in the championship round to the Quad Cities River Bandits. Redmond managed the Dunedin Blue Jays in the Florida State League this past season, finishing 78-55 and losing in the FSL playoffs to the Lakeland Flying Tigers. Miami is clearly thinking out of the box with the Redmond hire, bringing in a former Marlins player with just two years of managerial experience in the low minors. It'll be interesting to see what happens with Redmond as manager as opposed to Ozzie Guillen, and this seems to continue a recent trend of hiring younger managers with limited (or a complete lack of) managerial experience.
