Marlins to announce new front office
MIAMI — The Marlins have called a noon news conference for Sunday, where they are expected to announce the new structure of their front office.
Dan Jennings, according to sources, is in line to be promoted to oversee personnel decisions.
Michael Hill, the current general manager, also is expected to remain in the organization.
The Marlins on Friday dismissed Larry Beinfest as president of baseball operations. The club also let go of Jim Fleming, who was a special assistant to the president of baseball operations.
Jennings has been the vice president of player development and assistant general manager.
The Marlins on Sunday are wrapping up their fourth straight losing season. They carry a 61-100 record into the 1:10 p.m. ET contest with the Tigers.
