Edwin Rodriguez wasn’t the only Marlins staff member who received strong endorsements from players. Several hitters said they would love to continue their relationship with John Mallee.
The Marlins promoted Mallee from minor league hitting coordinator to replace Jim Presley, who in June was dismissed along with manager Fredi Gonzalez. With the exception of pitching coach Randy St. Claire, who is signed through 2011, Mallee and the rest of the coaches are in limbo until the Marlins hire a manager.
