Having just dismissed manager Ozzie Guillen after one year, the Marlins have already requested and received permission to interview Blue Jays minor-league manager Mike Redmond for the vacant position.


After Ozzie Guillen failed as manager for the Marlins, the team appears to be focusing on young candidates. Redmond was a Marlins catcher from 1998-2004 and is currently being called "a strong frontrunner" for the position. Guillen was fired from the Marlins after one year, during which he only managed a 69-93 season. The $7.5 million remaining on his contract will be paid through 2015.
