Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

The Miami Marlins have interviewed Detroit Tigers batting coach Lloyd McClendon for their vacant managerial position.

Detroit Tigers hitting coach Lloyd McClendon has emerged as a possible candidate for the vacant Miami Marlins managerial position. McClendon interviewed with the Marlins on Tuesday, according to CBS Sports baseball insider Danny Knobler.

McClendon, 53 years old, has managerial experience, having managed the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2001-05. In those season, McClendon and the Pirates went 336-446. While that record does not look good on paper, McClendon did lead the Pirates to seasons of 75 and 72 wins, which were the most for the Pirates until winning 79 this past season.

McClendon has been with Tigers staff since 2006. In that time, the Tigers have reached the World Series twice and the American League Championship Series three times. Other potential candidates for the job include Mike Redmond and Larry Bowa. The Miami Marlins are attempting to replace manager Ozzie Guillen, who led the team to a 69-93 record, which left the Marlins last in the NL East.
