Abuse complaints against Miami Marlins hitting coach Tino Martinez (a former Tampa Bay Rays player) came into the public light on Wednesday. Former Stone Crabs player Derek Dietrich was among the first players to come forward, with the allegation that Martinez grabbed him by the front of the jersey in May, saying also that Martinez’s physical and verbal abuses had been persistent since Spring Training this year. Dietrich was recently demoted to Double-A Jacksonville, and shortly after detailed publicly. Martinez admits to most of his actions.
