The Miami Marlins are “aggressively seeking” a replacement for manager Ozzie Guillen now that the team has finished its season at the bottom of the NL East, according to a tweet on Thursday from ESPN’s Buster Olney.
Guillen led the team to a 69-93 record in his first season as manager. He signed with the Marlins last year on a four-deal year worth $10 million. According to The Miami Herald, he and Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria have spoken on several occasions in the past week but the conversations were more about how to improve the team than anything specific about Guillen’s job status.
Guillen reportedly went overseas today for vacation, so it’s possible that we won’t hear an announcement one way or the other until his return to Miami. The team wrapped up its season on Wednesday with a loss to the New York Mets.
Marlins are aggressively seeking a replacement for Ozzie Guillen. Will they wait to find someone before firing him? We'll see.—
