MIAMI — Mike Redmond was fired as manager of the Miami Marlins, a team off to a disappointing 16-22 start after an aggressive offseason.

Redmond played parts of three seasons with the Portland Sea Dogs.

The announcement came Sunday shortly after the Marlins were nearly no-hit by Atlanta’s Shelby Miller. Justin Bour singled with two outs in the ninth inning of a 6-0 loss that completed a three-game sweep.

Redmond’s replacement will be announced Monday, the Marlins said. Bench coach Rob Leary also was fired.

Following a busy offseason highlighted by the signing of slugger Giancarlo Stanton to a record $325 million contract, the Marlins had high hopes of ending an 11-year playoff drought. But their bullpen has been woeful, and the batting order has struggled aside from major-league RBIs leader Stanton and batting leader Dee Gordon.
