  • Nationals to hire Dave Martinez as new manager according to cryptic Wade Boggs tweet

After letting Dusty Baker walk after back-to-back division titles, the Nationals have chosen Cubs bench coach Davey Martinez to be their next manager, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

The two sides hadn't negotiated a finalized contract as of Saturday night, but a source confirmed the finalized deal (which was first reported by The Washington Post) this morning. He worked for the Rays as an instructor for a couple years before coming on as the team's bench coach after the 2007 season, working under Joe Maddon. Get the app and get the game.

The Chicago Cubs have another vacancy to fill, as one of Joe Maddon's top lieutenants has accepted another job.

Martinez, a former outfielder who played for nine different teams during his 16 years in the majors, will become the seventh full-time manager for the Nationals since they moved from Montreal before the 2005 season. After getting so little time off this year, Ross is said to be waiting until after the World Series is over before even considering anything else for next season. The Nationals also reached out to Houston Astros bench coach Alex Cora, who was already closing in on a deal to become the next manager of the Boston Red Sox at the time. But the Nats were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs both times under Baker.




None of the coaches who served under Baker were retained by the team, and no new coaching hires have been announced yet.

With Martinez's departure, Maddon's staff will be nearly completely different for next season.

Martinez experienced a decade-long education under Maddon, who is considered a forward-thinking type with a willingness to buck baseball tradition when needed.
