Jayce Tingler Hired As Padres Manager

The San Diego Padres ended their managerial search on Thursday.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the Padres are hiring Jayce Tingler to lead the club.

Tingler, 38, is actively the major league player development field coordinator for the Texas Rangers. He has ties to general manager A.J Preller who was the assistant GM of the Rangers before becoming the Padres GM in 2014.

Tingler replaced Andy Green, who was fired Sept. 21 after going 274-366 with the team since he was hired ahead of the 2016 season. Rod Barajas served as the Padres’ interim manager for the remainder of the season, which marked the team’s 13th straight year without a playoff appearance.

Despite signing superstar Manny Machado in the previous offseason, the Padres finished last in the NL West with a 70-92 record.

Tingler, a Missouri native, played college ball for the Mizzou Tigers and was selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2003 draft. He spent four years in the minors, reaching Double-A before ending his playing career and climbing up the managerial ranks in the Rangers organization. He’s managed in the Dominican summer league, worked in the Rangers’ minor league system, and spent time as an assistant GM. He is currently managing the Dominican winter league team to a 9-1 record.

Tingler is respected and known for his work ethic and game knowledge. He is also bilingual as he is a native Spanish speaker, which should be an important skill for him on a Padres organization filled with international prospects.

Former Rangers manager Ron Washington and former Padres player Mark Loretta were also in the running to replace Green. The Padres hope Tingler can be the change the managerial organization needs as the talent pool increases in San Diego.
