The Texas Rangers are making a major change.

According to reports, the team has fired manager Jeff Banister with just 10 games left on their regular season schedule. With a 64-88 record, the team is guaranteed their second straight losing season.

Banister, 54, had been the Rangers manager since being hired to replace interim manager Tim Bogar prior to the 2015 season. During his tenure, he led the team to a combined 325-313 regular season record, and two trips to the postseason over a span of four seasons; both of which ended in ALDS losses to the Toronto Blue Jays.

He departs as the fourth most winningest manager in franchise history.

No word yet on who they are considering for his replacement.
