LA Dodgers Manager to sign new deal

Published Add your comment

LA Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is close to signing a new deal with the club, reports.

The 52-year-old manager has been with the team for three years and led the team to the NLCS last season.

However Mattingly’s current contract is only guaranteed for one more year with the manager stating his displeasure with the situation during their playoff run.

The new deal has been under discussion for most of the current off-season and Mattingly said during the winter meetings that he would be keen to stay.

“I love where I’m at,” said Mattingly. “I’m proud to be representing the Dodgers and managing their club. We’re in talks right now.”

Last year was the Dodgers' most successful since 2009 as Mattingly masterminded a dramatic turnaround to send the Dodgers to the post-season for the first time in his career.

For his accomplishments Mattingly finished second in the NL Manager of the year race to Clint Hurdle.

Should Mattingly and the club come to a deal before Spring Training with Cy Young award winning pitcher Clayton Kershaw and entertaining outfielder Yasiel Puig already on board the future looks to be bright for the Dodgers.
