Barry Bonds’ tenure with the Miami Marlins apparently is already over.
The Marlins reportedly fired their hitting coach after just one season, FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman reported Monday, citing Major League Baseball sources. MLB.com’s Marlins reporter Joe Frisaro confirmed the news, though the club has yet to make an announcement.
Miami hired Bonds in December on the suggestion of team owner Jeffrey Loria, an idea that manager Don Mattingly was on board with. However, that support reportedly didn’t last long.
The job was Bonds’ first coaching gig since his last MLB appearance in 2007.
