Reds pitching coach Bryan Price, a former standout pitcher at Cal, will reportedly be named Cincinnati's new manager at a press conference Tuesday.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that Price, 51, will replace recently fired Dusty Baker and become the Reds' 61st manager in team history.
Price, who still holds Cal's all-time record for most innings pitched, has been Cincinnati's pitching coach since 2010. Price served as current A's manager Bob Melvin's pitching coach both in Seattle and Arizona, resigning as a Diamondbacks coach out of loyalty to Melvin, who was fired in 2009 by Arizona.
Though he never played in the major leagues, Price has been a major league pitching coach for 14 years. Price, a former Tamalpais High of Mill Valley standout, won 25 games, threw 11 complete games and struck out 235 batters for Cal between 1981-84. He still holds the record for most innings pitched for the Bears with 374 2/3, and is third in career victories and fifth in career strikeouts. In 1983, Price was the team's MVP and finished tied for the Pac-10 lead with 87 strikeouts.
