Marlins Fire Manager Mike Redmond

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(MIAMI) -- The Miami Marlins fired manager Mike Redmond following their 6-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.

The Marlins sit at 16-22 and owner Jeffrey Loria could not watch anymore of the lack-luster play this season.

"We haven't played to our capabilities," Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. "We're hopeful that a new voice will spark and motivate our guys."

"We're looking for that consistency," Hill continued. "We're swinging the bat well at times, but not when we need to do it. We're pitching well at times, but not when we need to do it. I think the solution is in that clubhouse."

Redmond went 62-100 during his first year with the club in 2013 and they improved under him, finishing 77-85 in 2014, but the organization couldn't afford another losing season.

The Marlins will announce who is taking over the club on Monday at 11 A.M. Eastern.

Marlins Release C Jarrod Saltalamacchia

iStockphoto(MIAMI) -- The Miami Marlins released catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia on Tuesday, eight days after the team designated him for assignment. The club will be responsible for what’s remaining on Saltalamacchia’s three-year, $21 million contract he signed prior to the 2014 season.

In 123 games with Miami, he batted .209 with 12 home runs and 45 RBIs. This season, he went just 2-for-29 (.069) with one homer. With the nine-year veteran playing poorly, the Marlins turned to J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher.

Saltalamacchia won a World Series championship in 2013 with the Boston Red Sox.

Jose Fernandez Throws to Live Batters

Denis Poroy/Getty Images(JUPITER, Fla.) -- For the first time since having Tommy John surgery, Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez threw to live batters Thursday.

Fernandez, who hasn't pitched against hitters since May 9, 2014, threw 15 pitches at the Marlins' spring training complex behind Roger Dean Stadium.

"It was competing and it felt really fantastic," Fernandez said. "Command of the ball was (good), except for one or two pitches that were up in the zone a little bit. (I) was sticking my fastball really well. Breaking ball was good. Changeup was good. And I was really happy with the way everything came out today."

The 22-year-old Fernandez was the 2013 National League Rookie of the Year before getting hurt in his sophomore season. He is expected to rejoin the Marlins' rotation some time in mid July.

In two seasons with the Marlins, Fernandez has started 36 games, pitching 224 1/3 innings while compiling a 16-8 record, 2.25 ERA, 257 strikeouts, and a .97 WHIP.

Giancarlo Stanton Calls Out the Struggling Marlins 

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A popular postseason pick, the Miami Marlins have not looked like a team capable of playing in October early on. Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton made it known that he's frustrated with how the team has played this season.

Through 11 games, the Marlins are 3-8, tied for worst in the National League East.

"We're not really giving ourselves a chance, it feels like," Stanton said after the team's loss to the New York Mets on Friday night. "We've got a positive vibe, but [something] is just not there.

"The fire is not there, it seems like. You always want to have it. But when you're out there and it's game time, it's just nothing there."

During the offseason, Stanton agreed on a record-setting $325 million contract. The Marlins also brought in players like Dee Gordon, Mat Latos, Martin Prado, and Michael Morse.
