The Padres are hiring veteran coach Mike Shildt as their new supervisor, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports.
This will likely be Shildt’s second stint as a manger within the majors, having already managed the Cardinals between 2018 and ’21. In that span, Shildt led St. Louis to 90-win seasons in two full seasons, and had profitable data each after taking on midseason in 2018 and within the shortened ’20 season.
Overall, the veteran went 252-199 with the Cardinals, together with an NLCS look in 2019, however the group moved on from him following a Wild Card berth in ’21. He joined the Padres final yr as an assistant coach.
San Diego will rent Shildt to switch Bob Melvin, who left the workforce after two seasons to take the identical job with the Giants. Shildt would be the Padres’ seventh supervisor for the reason that workforce fired Bud Black halfway by way of the 2015 season.
Last yr, San Diego upset with an 82-80 file regardless of making it to the NLCS a season prior.
