MIAMI (AP) Former Seattle Mariners pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre Jr. has been hired as pitching coach for the Miami Marlins.
Also joining manager Don Mattingly's staff is former Kansas City Royals manager Trey Hillman, who will be first base and infield coach.
Like Mattingly and Marlins CEO Derek Jeter, Stottlemyre and Hillman have ties to the New York Yankees. Stottlemyre's father, Mel, was a Yankees pitcher and pitching coach. Hillman is a former manager in the Yankees' minor league system, and in 2011-13 he was Mattingly's bench coach with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
