The San Diego Padres are dismissing manager Jayce Tingler. As the team announced on Twitter.
Tingler led the Padres to the National League Division Series in 2020, but with a better roster in 2021, the Padres regressed?
“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,” General Manager A.J. Preller said. “I have tremendous respect for him as a coach, colleague, and friend. After much thought and consideration over the last several weeks, we felt a change was necessary at this time to ultimately reach our championship potential in San Diego.”
“It’s been the honor and privilege of a lifetime to manage the San Diego Padres and lead this group of men,” Tingler said in a statement. “I’m truly thankful for the opportunity and grateful for the tireless efforts of our players, coaches and support staff over the last two years. While I’m profoundly disappointed that our season ended far too soon, I know this team has a very bright future ahead.”
The 40-year-old Tingler’s 222-game tenure is the shortest for a non-interim Padres manager since Larry Bowa managed 208 games from 1987 to ’88. Jayce Tingler went 116-106 in his first turn as a big-league manager. He took the Padres to the playoffs at the end of the 60-game 2020 season, the franchise’s first playoff berth in 14 years. He was one of three managers to do so in the Padres’ 53 years of existence.
The Padres will be looking for a new manager that can get them to a championship.
