The Detroit Tigers intend to hire Ron Gardenhire as their next manager.

Gardenhire, who spent 13 years managing the Minnesota Twins and last season as the Arizona Diamondbacks' bench coach, is being pursued by the Tigers pending the completion of a contract, The Athletic reported Thursday.

During the process, Avila interviewed a number of candidates, including Marlins third base coach Fredi Gonzalez, White Sox third base coach Joe McEwing, Giants hitting coach Hensley Meulens, Astros bench coach Alex Cora and Rockies bench coach Mike Redmond.

It's worth noting that while Gardenhire isn't known for his tactical ability, he is a drastic departure from former manager Brad Ausmus in that he enters the job with a wealth of experience. According to MLB.com, Gardenhire emerged as frontrunner for the position after he was interviewed by the Tigers Tuesday in Detroit.




The Tigers are in rebuild mode and traded away J.D.

Gardenhire may be 59-years-old, but if his comments released by the team are any indication, his passion for the game of baseball is still fully intact.

The Tigers announced the move Friday, saying Gardenhire has agreed to a three-year contract. He managed the Twins from 2002-14, going 1,068-1,039.

"We are very excited to introduce Ron Gardenhire as the new manager of the Detroit Tigers", said Al Avila, Tigers general manager. Gardenhire was seen as a seasoned, battle-tested option in this regard.
