The Miami Marlins hired Mike Redmond as their new manager, not Detroit Tigers hitting coach Lloyd McClendon. The Marlins met with McClendon on Tuesday, Oct. 30 among others as a potential replacement for Ozzie Guillen, but the team opted for Redmond, a former catcher with the Marlins and a manager in the Toronto Blue Jays system.

McClendon has been with the Tigers since 2006. From 2001 to 2005, he was the manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates. McClendon led Pittsburgh to a 336-446 record during his time with the Pirates.

Redmond spent 2012 managing Dunedin, Toronto's high-A team. He was 155-115 as a manger in his two years in the Toronto system. He was a member of the Marlins 2003 World Series team.

In addition to Redmond and McClendon, the Marlins interviewed Larry Bowa, Luis Gonzalez, and Bryan Price among others. Last season Miami finished 69-93, last place in the NL East.
