Nationals Hire Dave Martinez As New Manager

Dave Martinez

The agreement with Martinez was first reported Sunday by The Washington Post.

Davey Martinez is the Washington Nationals choice to be their next manager, sources tell FanRag Sports.

Martinez played 16 season as an outfielder in the majors, for the Cubs, Expos, Reds, Giants, White Sox, Rays, Blue Jays, and Braves. Martinez ranks among the top 20 in franchise history in several categories, including his 22 triples (tied for 15th), his 68 stolen bases (18th) and his 70.83 stolen base percentage (17th).

The 53-year-old Martinez doesn't have any managerial experience, and therefore represents a stark departure from Baker, who was the winningest active manager when his Nationals' tenure ended. Baker was let go after posting 95-win and 97-win seasons, both of which concluded with Game 5 losses in the National League Division Series. Martinez has been Joe Maddon's bench coach since 2008 with the Rays and the Cubs.

Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram termed BJP demand's of Ahmed Patel's resignation as "outrageous". Two suspected ISIS operatives were arrested by the Gujarat Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) three days ago.

Martinez has been a candidate for several managerial openings in recent years.

According to Heyman, the Nationals also interviewed Mets hitting coach Kevin Long and former Red Sox manager John Farrell, with the latter reportedly being unable to handle pitcher David Price in the Boston clubhouse.

None of the coaches who served under Baker were retained by the team, and no new coaching hires have been announced yet.

The ballclub is expected to tap Chicago Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez to take the reigns after parting ways with Dusty Baker.
