Marlins Anoint GM Dan Jennings as Manager

jenningsmanagerIn baseball years, the Miami (or Florida) Marlins aren’t that old. But even so, they’ve done some eyebrow-raising things in their existence. But this latest one if surprising, even for them.

Over the weekend, Manager Mike Redmond was relieved of his duties. Today, the team has announced that GM Dan Jennings will take over as manager. Serving as GM and manager isn’t something you typically see in baseball, which makes this even more interesting.

In a bizarre hiring that followed a surprising firing, the Miami Marlins are scheduled to introduce Dan Jennings, their current general manager, to be their new manager, a high-ranking Marlins official confirmed to USA TODAY Sports.
