Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price will return to his position for the 2016 season, general manager Walt Jocketty announced to reporters, including the Cincinnati Inquirer's C. Trent Rosecrans on Saturday.
The second year manager Price has been under a lot of scrutiny from Reds fans. This has included an expletive-ridden rant against reporters earlier in the year, as well as poor play from the team overall.
The Reds have underperformed expectations thus far this season, going 63-97 at the time of this writing. They are currently on a 13-game losing streak which could end up leading them to the No. 1 overall pick in next year's MLB Draft.
Price has been the Reds manager since 2013, when he was promoted from pitching coach in October of that year. Over the past two years with Price at the helm, the Reds have fallen apart, finishing second-to-last and last in the National League Central.
Bob Nightengale of USA Today first reported that the Reds would be bringing back Price in 2016.
