The Padres have fired manager Jayce Tingler after the team failed to make the playoffs despite entering the season with hopes of challenging for a World Series title.
Tingler is out after two seasons, finishing with an 116-106 overall record, including a disappointing 79-83 this year. He had one year remaining on his contract.
He has been offered an opportunity to remain with the organization.
“Jayce accomplished a great deal in his two seasons with the Padres, leading our team through an unprecedented pandemic and into the postseason for the first time in 15 years,” president of baseball operations and general manager A.J. Preller said in a statement. “I have tremendous respect for him as a coach, colleague and friend. After much thought and consideration over the last several weeks, we felt change was necessary at this time to ultimately reach our championship potential in San Diego.”
