The Miami Marlins are in the process of re-evaluating their front office and that includes the job of first-year manager Ozzie Guillen could be in jeopardy, reports FoxSports.com.

Multiple reports said that the Marlins were planning to fire Larry Beinfest, the president of baseball operations and replace him with Dan Jennings, the team’s assistant general manager.

Guillen is in the first year of a four-year, $10 million contract. The Marlins are last in the National League East with a record of 66-84.

MLB.com reported that the Marlins have looked into former third baseman Mike Lowell as an option to replace Guillen. Washington Nationals third base coach Bo Porter and San Diego Padres special assistant Brad Ausmus are also being considered.
