Statement from Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria

The Marlins organization has decided to make some changes at the helm of our Baseball Operations. Effective immediately, I have relieved Larry Beinfest of his duties so that he may pursue other opportunities.

Larry has worked with me for 13 years, making huge contributions to our efforts and serving as a partner to me in the process. I wish him nothing but the best and know he will make a great addition wherever he lands.

We have also relieved Jim Fleming of his duties as Special Assistant to the President of Baseball Operations. We thank him for his service to our team and wish him well.

I will soon be making further announcements in terms of our new structure in baseball operations.
