So much for the Red Sox having interest in Tino Martinez as their hitting coach.
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Martinez has been hired as the hitting coach with the Marlins. He’ll join the staff of Mike Redmond, who was named manager last week.
Martinez has never coached professionally, but was a special assistant with the Yankees and has served as an instructor with the club during spring training. The Tampa native was most recently an analyst with YES Network.
Martinez played 16 seasons in the major leagues, compiling a .271/.344/.471 batting line to go along with 1,925 hits and 339 homers while making stops with the Mariners, Yankees, Cardinals and Rays.
