The San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball have named former St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shields, 55, as their new manager.

“We have agreed to a two-year contract with Coach Shields,” the Padres announced on Wednesday, calling him “our 23rd manager.”

Sylt, who worked with Oh Seung-hwan (now with the Samsung Lions) as St. Louis’ quality control coach in 2017 and Kim Kwang-hyun (now with the SSG Landers) as St. Louis’ manager in 2020 and 2021, will be joined in San Diego by Gold Glove winner Kim Ha-seong.

San Diego finished third in the National League West this year, missing the postseason.

After the season, Bob Melvin was relieved of his duties in San Diego and became the new manager of the San Francisco Giants.

San Diego interviewed multiple managers and decided to start fresh with Schilt, who has served as an advisor to the organization for the past two years.

“He’s a proven leader,” said San Diego general manager A.J. Preller, “He runs the team in a fair and transparent way, and he’s great at communicating with players.” 보스토토 주소

Schildt managed St. Louis from 2018-2021. In 2019, he was named National League Manager of the Year.

In 2022 and 2023, he served as an advisor to San Diego.

“We have a lot of talented players on this team,” Schilt told MLB.com and other local media outlets, “and we’re going to create a structure where they can grow and the team can grow with them.”

“Last year and this year, I’ve seen some frustration in the dugout, and our players are hungry to win,” he said. “We’re going to work together to make sure they enjoy the game and get more wins, which is what they want.”
