MLB notes: Rockies bring in Mike Redmond as bench coach

The Colorado Rockies have brought in Mike Redmond to serve as the bench coach on new manager Bud Black’s staff. The 45-year-old Redmond was the manager of the Miami Marlins from 2013-15, where he compiled a 155-207 record.

Redmond fired as manager of Marlins after sweep by Braves

MIAMI – Twelve years ago, when the Marlins were 16-22, owner Jeffrey Loria fired his manager. With that same 16-22 record, Loria fired manager Mike Redmond on Sunday after the Marlins were nearly no-hit in a 6-0 loss to Atlanta that completed a three-game sweep.

Redmond rewarded

The Miami Marlins and manager Mike Redmond, who starred at Gonzaga Prep and Gonzaga University, have agreed to a contract extension through the 2017 season. In each of the last three years, the Marlins have made either a managerial change or a change in their baseball operations leadership. “Owner Jeffrey Loria sat down with Mike and expressed to him that his leadership has really helped get this team in the right direction,” club president David Samson said. “It was really a unanimous feeling among the entire front office that Mike Redmond is the perfect leader for this team.

Replay wizards becoming key positions on MLB teams

KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Propped up next to a satellite production truck, peering at a laptop outside Osceola County Stadium, Cullen McRae was practicing. Not hitting. Or pitching. Or fielding.

What are the odds?

With the pass- ing of every inning, it seems, new algebra attaches itself to baseball – much of it useful, some of it inscrutable, maybe a bit of it much too much. Relax. None of it will be on the quiz.

Two big league managers from GSL: What are the odds?

With the passing of every inning, it seems, new algebra attaches itself to baseball – much of it useful, some of it inscrutable, maybe a bit of it much too much. Relax. None of it will be on the quiz. Today, the topic is managerial metrics, though nothing that might objectively measure and predict success, not that there is such a thing. But on Monday, behind the batting cage at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, stood the two men in charge of the evening’s program, both of them listing Spokane as their hometown – a confluence both unnatural, but near perfect. “Two guys from Spokane managing in the big leagues,” allowed Ryne Sandberg, “is a big thing.” It is, in fact, almost impossible math.

Spring is in the air

JUPITER, Fla. – New manager Mike Redmond arrived at the Miami Marlins’ spring training facility around 5 a.m. Monday. A few hours later, slugger Giancarlo Stanton arrived, a few days earlier than his requested reporting date.

Blanchette: Redmond makes it to the top at 41

As a player, Mike Redmond was baseball comfort food. Consider some of the descriptives that attached themselves to him in the course of his 13 major league seasons: reliable, savvy, genuine, valued, self-effacing, resolute, trusted. A grinder. An earner. A survivor. He could be leashed in the dugout for six games, then get the call for a seventh and perform with no discernible rust. He kept clubhouses loose, pitchers calm and reporters charmed.

Spokane’s Mike Redmond to manage Florida Marlins

The Miami Marlins’ celebrity manager was a bust, so they’re calling one up from the minors. Mike Redmond, who spent the past two years managing Class A teams in the Toronto Blue Jays’ system, was hired Thursday by the Marlins to replace Ozzie Guillen.

Redmond meets with Marlins about managing job

Now that he has followed Jim Leyland’s advice, Mike Redmond believes he’s ready to manage in the major leagues. The former catcher, who played at Gonzaga Prep and Gonzaga University, had his first interview for a big-league job this week when he met with Miami Marlins officials in New York City. Redmond spent the past two years managing Class A teams in the Toronto Blue Jays’ system.

Mariners make moves

Erik Bedard and Josh Wilson are coming back to Seattle. Jose Lopez is on his way to Colorado. The Mariners brought back Bedard, their oft-injured left-hander, with a one-year deal Thursday night. They also agreed to a 2011 contract with Wilson, a utility infielder, avoiding salary arbitration. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Spokane native ends career after 13 seasons in majors

Mike Redmond was in Boston during the weekend, a special guest of the Red Sox at “Mike Lowell Day” – the retirement ceremony for his close friend and one-time Florida Marlins teammate in front of more than 37,000 at Fenway Park. It was substantially more low-key in Spokane on Monday when Redmond made the end of his baseball playing career official at the age of 39 – but his memories were no less gratifying.

Blanchette: Redmond’s newfound free time filling up

On the back of the first Mike Redmond baseball card – Kane County Cougars, 1993 – it read, “Will be a great coach when playing days are over.” As left-handed compliments go, it was a grand slam.
