DENVER (AP) The Colorado Rockies have brought in Mike Redmond to serve as the bench coach on new manager Bud Black's staff.
The 45-year-old Redmond was the manager of the Miami Marlins from 2013-15, where he compiled a 155-207 record.
Redmond is a former major league catcher who spent parts of 13 seasons with the Marlins, Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians. He was on the Marlins squad that won a World Series title in 2003.
This was the first hire under Black, who was officially announced as the Rockies' skipper on Nov. 7.
Black said that Redmond ''brings a lot of intensity and a strong work ethic, and as a great communicator he is able to connect well with players.''
