A person familiar with the situation says Miami Marlins general manager Dan Jennings is the team's new manager.

The person confirmed the move to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the decision hasn't announced. A news conference is scheduled later Monday morning.

Jennings replaces Mike Redmond, who was fired Sunday after the Marlins were nearly no-hit in a 6-0 loss to Atlanta that completed a three-game sweep. The defeat dropped Miami to 16-22.

Jennings was in his second season as general manager, and has been with the Marlins on the personnel side since 2002. He briefly coached in high school in Mobile, Alabama, in the 1980s.

The Marlins' shake-up was the latest orchestrated by owner Jeffrey Loria, reinforcing his reputation for impatience with managers.
