It looks like the Toronto Blue Jays will be keeping Charlie Montoyo around for at least another couple of years.

The team confirmed that they have inked their manager to a multi-year contract extension that will run through the 2023 season and include team options for 2024 and 2025.

The 56-year old was initially hired in October 2018 after spending nearly 20 years working through the Tampa Bay Rays’ minor league system.

Over three seasons with Montoyo at the helm, the Blue Jays have posted a combined 190-194 regular season record and a postseason appearance during the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign.

The Toronto Blue Jays were up by two runs heading into the bottom of the 9th with one of the best closers in the game in Jordan Romano taking the mound.

You would think it was almost a 100% certainty that the Blue Jays would end up with the win.

Unfortunately for them, New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge had other plans!

Surprisingly, this was the first walk-off bomb in Judge’s career.

Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker has made history!

After the team cruised to a 4-0 win over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night, he became the first African American manager in MLB history to reach the 2000 win mark.

“I’m probably one of the luckiest men to ever walk on this earth” said Baker after securing the victory

“It means extra to the culture. It means extra to society. It means extra to my race, and it means extra hopefully for others to get an opportunity (so) I’m not the last”.

The incredible milestone was 29 years in the making. He recorded his first ever win as a manager of the San Francisco Giants on April 6, 1993.

He is 12th on the all-time wins list for MLB managers, and has the second most among active managers, trailing Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa.

Mets infielder Robinson Cano designated for assignment

Published

The Robinson Cano era in New York has come to an end.

The New York Mets announced that they have designated the eight-time All-Star for assignment, which likely puts an end to his time with the club.

The 39-year old, who returned to action this year after being suspended for the entire 2021 campaign due to his second career PED violation, has struggled to produce early on in the season.

Through 12 games and 43 plate appearances , the eight-time All-Star has posted a .195 batting average to go along with one homer and three RBI.

Cano had initially signed a 10-year, $240 million contract with the Seattle Mariners back in 2013, and was traded to the Mets prior to the 2019 season.

He still has another year left on the deal after this season, which will net him a $24 million salary in 2023 before being eligible for free agency.
