After an awful 3-15 start to the season, their worst start in team history, the Reds have fired manager Bryan Price.
Former Padres, Cubs, and Nationals manager Jim Riggleman, 65, will take over as the interim manager.
Price was 279-387 during his tenure with the Reds. This was his fifth season leading the club. The Reds have the worst record in the league during Price’s four full seasons.
The Reds have announced they are replacing manager Bryan Price and pitching coach Mack Jenkins. Effective immediately, bench coach Jim Riggleman is interim manager, Louisville manager Pat Kelly is bench coach, and Pensacola pitching coach Danny Darwin is major league staff.

This is just the second time the Reds have made an in-season coaching change since the Castellini’s have owned the franchise. Jerry Narron was let go after 82 games in 2007.
The Reds have the day off and will start a series with the Cardinals tomorrow.
