Looks like the shakeup in Miami is still underway as the Marlins are now pulling a 180 and will be dismissing Dan Jennings. The Former turned Manager, almost made a return to the front office. The timing of this seems suspicious as Miami has just hired Don Mattingly to manage the team. Jennings has three seasons left on his contract, so Miami will be on the hook for the remainder of his contract.
Jennings, 55, has been with the Miami organization since 2002. He served as the club’s general manager — working alongside president of baseball operations Michael Hill — from 2013 through the middle of 2015. After the team fired manager Mike Redmond in May, Jennings moved into the skipper’s seat in an eyebrow-raising move that didn’t pan out.
