2021 Padres Managerial Search: List of Candidates
Full Story on Jayce Tingler Officially Fired as San Diego Padres Manager
With Jayce Tingler fired, now is the time for the San Diego Padres to make a list of top candidates. In fact, the recognizable applicants could be qualified to become the team’s new manager for the 2022 Season. The Padres decided to fire Tingler after just two seasons and a 116-106 record. San Diego failed to reach the 2021 playoffs despite acquiring pitchers LHP Blake Snell, RHP Joe Musgrove, and RHP Yu Darvish in the off-season. To make matters worse, the Padres went 7-21 in their final 28 games after leading the 2nd NL Wild Card spot at one point in August. The fact of San Diego not making the playoffs has become one of baseball’s disappointing stories of 2021 even though they had the talented players of Fernando Tatis Jr, Manny Machado, Wil Myers, and Eric Hosmer.
Jayce Tingler’s Career with the Padres
Tingler led the Padres to the 2020 NLDS, their first such appearance since 2006. San Diego won the Wild Card Series vs. St. Louis Cardinals, but lost in the NLDS vs. the eventual World Series Champion Los Angeles Dodgers. Jayce Tingler was a finalist for the 2020 NL Manager of the Year award, but lost to Don Mattingly (Miami Marlins). Before coming to San Diego in 2020, Tingler was a field coordinator for the Texas Rangers for four seasons (2015-2016, 2018-2019). He also served as an Assistant GM for Texas in 2017.
