Marlins part ways with president of baseball operations Michael Hill. Here’s what’s next

Michael Hill, the Miami Marlins president of baseball operations for the last eight years, maneuvered through 174 roster roster moves and a COVID-19 outbreak to help the Marlins achieve one of their most successful season in franchise history. They had a winning record and reached the playoffs for the first time since 2003 one season after losing 105 games.

It turned out to be his final act in nearly two decades as part of the Marlins’ front office.

The Marlins are not retaining Hill, CEO Derek Jeter announced Sunday. Hill’s contract was set to expire, and Jeter’s plan was to wait until after the Marlins’ playoffs run ended to address his future. The two met over the past week to discuss Hill potentially returning but ultimately Jeter decided the best move was to part ways.
