Heading into the 2021 season, the San Diego Padres were expected to make a run at the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West.
Instead, the Padres underachieved and now, according to a report from Jon Heyman, they are firing manager Jayce Tingler.
It’s a tough business, folks!
Jayce Tingler will be relieved of managerial duties by the Padres. Tingler is a solid baseball man who did a good job last season. But considering the team’s lofty expectations and late-season collapse, this news was eaxpected.
