Padres fire manager Andy Green after four seasons  3 Weeks ago

Source:   USA Today  

With only eight games remaining during the regular season, the San Diego Padres on Saturday fired manager Andy Green.

The Padres, who dropped $527 million the last three seasons on Manny Machado, Eric Hosmer and Wil Myers, have regressed this season under his leadership and played poorly the second half of the season.  

"We feel like we've got a young talented group that has a chance to be competitive," executive VP and general manager A.J. Preller told The Associated Press. "We made some progress in the earlier part of season, but as the second half went on we didn't see the team getting into a spot where we could see continual improvement.

"We feel like a different person in that chair has a chance to take a young, talented group into a different spot."

The Padres were 45-45 at the All-Star break and have gone 24-40 since, including losing eight of their last nine games to drop their record to 69-85 -- fourth worst in the National League.

Green was in his fourth season with San Diego and finishes with a 274-366 record. He's lost 90 or more games in each of his three full years and is assured a fourth-straight losing season.

Green, who signed a two-year extension in August, 2017, had two years left on his deal. Rod Barajas, the Padres bench coach, will serve as the interim manager for the rest of the season.

Green is the first manager to be fired this season.
