Reds to Name New Manager
The Cincinnati Reds have moved on from Dusty Baker fairly quickly.
Pitching coach Bryan Price will be named the teams 61st manager in team history at a press conference on Tuesday.
Baker lasted six seasons on the job, earning the Reds two division titles along with three 90-win seasons.
Price has been the Reds pitching coach since 2010, Price has also spent time with the Seattle Mariners and Arizona Diamondbacks as their pitching coach.
Many baseball officials believe that Price can be credited for the success of the Reds young pitchers. Aroldis Chapman, Mike Leake and JJ Hoover have all developed into big league arms under Price.
Price and former Washington Nationals manager Jim Riggleman were the only two confirmed interviewees.
According to reports Baker, 64, recently was quoted in saying he'd be 'flattered' and 'honored' with an opportunity in managing the Detroit Tigers, taking over for a retiring Jim Leyland.
