Reds choose Bryan Price for next manager


The Reds stayed in-house for their next manager, giving pitching coach Bryan Price a three-year deal Tuesday to take the team deep into the playoffs. The job carries enormous expectations for the 51-year-old Price, who has been one of the most successful pitching coaches in the majors but has never managed at any level. Dusty Baker led the Reds to three 90-win seasons and three playoff appearances in the last four years, but Cincinnati got knocked out in the first round of the postseason each time. Price was a left-handed pitcher for six years in the minors. He started his coaching career in Seattle’s farm system and was the Mariners’ pitching coach from 2000-05. He moved to Arizona as pitching coach from 2006-09. – Associated Press
