It looks like the Cincinnati Reds are prepared to name their next manager, and they will look to promote within their organization instead of bringing in an outsider:

 

 

 

He’s been the Reds’ pitching coach since 2010, and has played a critical role in the club making it to the postseason in three of the past four seasons.

Before coming to the Reds, he spent 10 years as a MLB pitching coach. His first job was with the Seattle Mariners from 2000-2005, then with the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2006-2009. Price has never pitched in the majors. He went 31-19 with a 3.74 ERA in the Angels’ and Mariners’ minor leagues systems.

After the team fired Dusty Baker following their first-round exit in the playoffs, Price was immediately viewed as the favorite to land the job.
