ESPN Deportes hands the mike to Guillen for WBC

ESPN Deportes is hiring former Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen to be a guest analyst for its coverage of the World Baseball Classic.

Guillen, fired from the Marlins last fall, will aid in coverage of WBC second-round games March 12-16 at Marlins Park in Miami and then the semifinals and championship game March 17-19 from AT&T Park in San Francisco.

The outspoken Guillen has served in guest analyst stints for baseball coverage on both Fox Sports and ESPN. This latest assignment does not carry any commitments toward future work with ESPN.

“We anticipate Ozzie will bring a real spark to the telecast,” said Lino Garcia, ESPN Deportes general manager. “We expect this to be a lot of fun.”
