Edwin Rodriguez will remain the Marlins' interim manager for the remainder of the 2010 season, according to ESPN.com's Buster Olney. Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports (via Twitter) that Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria told the team the news today. The Marlins, who have been linked to Bobby Valentine ever since they fired manager Fredi Gonzalez, will reevaluate their long-term options after the season.
The Marlins were reportedly considering D'Backs third base coach Bo Porter for the opening after philosophical differences between Valentine and the team became apparent. Valentine was considered the favorite for the job and appeared to have won it as recently as a few days ago.
Rodriguez, who had been managing the Marlins' Triple A affiliate, has two wins since taking over, including one last night in his native Puerto Rico. Overall, the Marlins are 2-4 under Rodriguez.
