The Marlins announced after the game tonight that they have beaten the coach Mike Pagliarulo out of his post, as Joe Frisaro of MLB.com had to report as one of them ( Twitter Link ). He will be alternately replaced by Jeff Livesey, with Eric Duncan will take over the role of assistant coach.
Pagliarulo had already taken the helm in the run-up to the 2016 season and was his first MLB coaching role. The former third major baseball player had previously worked as a Triple A coach. Livesey, the former assistant coach who beat pirates, was deployed in Miami prior to the current campaign. Duncan, once a celebrated Yankees prospectus, never made it to the majors, but had risen as a powerful trainer in the New York farm system.
The president of baseball operations Michael Hill explained the decision (via Wells Dusenberry of the baseball) to Sun Sentinel, on Twitter ), which the Marlins called "a lightweight voting team". Since the organization noted that "the necessary adjustments" had not been made, it was decided "that it was time for a new vote and then a change had to be made."
While expectations for the Marlins were low, With more than 680 record appearances, the Miami-Hitters wore a cumulative .216 / .275 / .332 headline with the league's second worst running rate (6.6%) and the fourth lowest wRC + (65th) ).
