Martinez new Marlins hitting coach

MIAMI — Tino Martinez, a four-time World Series champion as a player, will now get a chance to offer his insights to the Marlins as a coach.

Miami on Thursday hired Martinez as their new hitting coach. The 44-year-old, who was part of four title teams with the Yankees, takes over for Eduardo Perez, who recently was named Houston’s bench coach.

Martinez is the first coaching hire of new manager Mike Redmond. The Marlins continue to search for a bench coach and pitching coach.

The staff includes Martinez, Perry Hill (infield/first base), Joe Espada (third base) and Reid Cornelius (bullpen).
