Dodgers part ways with Don Mattingly

Mattingly immediately becomes a candidate for multiple managerial openings.

Don Mattingly and the Los Angeles Dodgers appear set to part ways. According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the "decision is being described as mutual."

Although the Dodgers were known to be fond of Mattingly, the club's new front office inherited him as manager. Now, the organization will have an opportunity to hire a new manager after falling to the Mets in the National League Division Series.

Heyman adds Mattingly wants to keep managing, and the Marlins are known to have interest in Mattingly. He could also immediately become a candidate for the Washington and San Diego jobs.

Since taking over for Joe Torre, Mattingly has gone 446-363 under Mattingly's leadership. The front office did not address a lack of rotation depth and bullpen help. As a result, Mattingly was left to work with what he had.

While Owner Mark Walter might be fond of Mattingly, the Dodgers are now set to head in a different direction.
