Reds Manager Bryan Price will return next season and have a club option for 2018, the team announced Friday.
Price, who initially served as Cincinnati’s pitching coach, has managed the club for the last three seasons.
While the Reds have been attempting to rebuild and have been plagued by injuries, Price hasn’t had much success as a manager, posting a 207-277 record entering play Saturday.
Though the Reds have struggled throughout 2016, they posted a winning record in July and are only a game under five-hundred since the All-Star Break.
More from around the National League Central:
- Theo Epstein carefully constructed the Cubs’ roster, which features a talented core headed to the postseason.
- 2016 hasn’t been a great season for the Cardinals, who probably deserve the opportunity to play a postseason game.
- Throughout the off-season, the Pirates will be challenged to rebuild there roster, which features several notable free agents.
- Despite what you might believe, the Brewers are not far from making the playoffs.
- Regardless of Price’s extension, the Reds had difficulty winning games. How should Cincinnati fans characterize their season?
