Redmond had signed a three-year deal prior to the 2013 season. The 43-year-old had never coached in the majors leagues. Upon his retirement in 2010 after 13 seasons in the big leagues, Redmond managed the Class-A Lansing Lugnuts in 2011 and Class A-Advanced Dunedin in 2012 of the Toronto Blue Jays organization.

"It has been such a great year for us and a tremendous step we've taken," president of baseball operations Michael Hill told FOX Sports Florida's telecast. "We've spoken so much about continuity and building blocks and we spent a long time over the last few days and weeks with our owner Jeffrey Loria about our direction and where we want to go. We felt there was no better message to deliver to the people of South Florida than to tell them our manager Mike Redmond has been extended through the 2017 season.
