Posada joins Jeter in the direction of the Marlins

  Former Puerto Rican forward Jorge Posada agreed to team up with his former New York Yankees teammate Derek Jeter, but this time at the Miami Marlins’ headquarters, a source close to the negotiations said Tuesday.

Posada will work as a special adviser to Jeter, his former teammate of the Yankees and now president of the Marlins, said the same source.

Jeter has said he has “zero patience” when it comes to rebuilding the Marlins, so he aims to form a winning team for the 2019 season.

Posada has lived in South Florida since retiring from the majors at the end of the 2011 season.

The former Puerto Rican hitter batted .273 with 275 homers and 1,065 RBIs in 17 seasons with the Yankees.

He was also the lead hitter when the Marlins recorded their final exit to beat the Yankees in the 2003 World Series, hitting a soft grounder to first base and being put out by pitcher Josh Beckett, who finished the game and gave the Florida its second major league championship.

Since that year the Marlins have not played a postseason game.

Jeter starts his second season as president of the team. (EFE).
