CLEVELAND - Edwin Rodriguez has been hired by the Cleveland Indians to manage their Double-A affiliate, the Carolina Mudcats.


The 51-year-old Rodriguez managed the Florida Marlins for parts of two seasons before resigning this year during a long losing skid. He went 78-85 with the Marlins and became the first Puerto Rican-born manager in major league history.


Before taking over the Marlins, Rodriguez managed in Florida’s farm system for five years. In that role, he worked as the Mudcats’ hitting coach in 2004.


Rodriguez played in the majors for the New York Yankees and San Diego Padres before retiring in 1987.

I'd agree with him being a better manager than Fredi. The only thing I was consistently baffled by was his restraint on Bonifacio running. He was a far superior in-game manager than Fredi though. It was just one of those bizarre sports related flukes that happen once every ten years or so to a team. I wish him nothing but the best.
