Marlins Hire Don Mattingly As Manager

Just seven days after the Los Angeles Dodgers and Don Mattingly parted ways, Mattingly will take over as the new manager for the Miami Marlins

The news was first reported by Vice Sports. The Marlins haven't officially announced the move and the AP reports they might not until after the World Series

Mattingly replaces Dan Jennings, who switched from the team's general manager to their skipper in May. The Marlins posted a 71-91 record, their sixth straight losing season. Jennings was supposed to return to his role as GM, but hasn't done so yet

Mattingly posted a 446-363 record in his five seasons with Dodgers. Mattingly will have a drastic change in payroll, going from the Dodgers' $270 million to the Marlins' $69 million. However, the Marlins do have young stars in outfield Giancarlo Stanton and pitcher Jose Fernandez. 

It's unknown if Mattingly will bring any of his staff from Los Angeles with him to Miami.
