Marlins expected to introduce Don Mattingly on Monday
MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Marlins have scheduled a news conference for Monday, where they’re expected to introduce new manager Dan Mattingly. The press conference can be seen on FOX Sports Florida at 10 a.m.
Miami hired Mattingly last week less than a week after he parted with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He becomes the Marlins’ 10th manager — including Jack McKeon for two stints — since Jeffrey Loria bought the team in 2002.
With the Marlins, Mattingly will face a big adjustment regarding resources. The Dodgers led the majors by far this year with a payroll of $289.6 million at the end of the regular season. Miami ranked last at $64.9 million, and little change is expected next season.
