Report: Marlins planning to keep Dan Jennings as manager in 2016

11 Comments

GM-turned-manager Dan Jennings has a 12-15 record since the Marlins were widely mocked for shifting him from the front office to the dugout following the firing of manager Mike Redmond.

And according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com the Marlins are planning to keep Jennings as their manager next season.

I can tell you that the club already has an eye towards the future. And Jennings staying as manager are part of those preliminary plans.

It’s worth noting that Frisaro’s article about Jennings likely staying on as manager contains some pretty clear pro-Marlins spin, including phrases like “managing is certainly agreeing with Dan Jennings” and “the club is starting to gain some traction” and “Jennings is all-in making this work.”

Again, the Marlins are 12-15 (.444) since firing Redmond and replacing him with Jennings. They were 16-22 (.421) with Redmond this season and 75-87 (.475) with Redmond last season.
