MIAMI — Tino Martinez resigned as the Miami Marlins’ hitting coach hours after complaints by players that he verbally abused them became public.

In one instance, Martinez acknowledged he angrily grabbed a player.

Martinez was in his first year as a professional coach this year. He sat in the dugout during Miami’s 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates, then met with Marlins officials and resigned.
