The Miami Marlins are likely to hire Barry Bonds as one of their two hitting coaches, as reported by Bob Nightengale of USA today, and confirmed by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Barry Bonds would be a co-hitting coach with Frank Menechio. Dexter Fowler has been one of Bonds’ students that last two offseasons and thinks very highly of him.

Like the Mark McGwire hiring, this is very controversial. Barry Bonds has been of course clouded in steroid controversy. The Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, however, is known for his questionable player transactions. A move like this is not surprising for someone like him.
