Ozzie Guillen To Be Announced As Marlins Manager On Wednesday

Ozzie Guillen will officially complete his transition to the Florida Marlins on Wednesday afternoon. The former manager of the Chicago White Sox will be announced as the next Marlins manager at a press conference scheduled for 1 p.m.

The Marlins announced the press conference early Wednesday morning, though didn't initially release the reason for the media gathering. Miami Herald beat writer Clark Spencer has confirmed, however, that it would be to announce Guillen as the team's next manager.

The move has been expected ever since Guillen told his players he was leaving on Monday night. In return for getting a new manager with a propensity to make press conferences interesting, the Marlins have given to the White Sox infielder Osvaldo Martinez and a minor league pitcher named Jhan Marinez.

Guillen is replacing the soon to be retired Jack McKeon as the Marlins' manager. The White Sox will apparently look to fill Guillen's position from outside the organization as they have already dismissed bench coach Joey Cora, the presumed heir to the Guillen throne.
