Blue Jays manager walks out

Blue Jays manager takes the door

DAY

The Toronto Blue Jays fired manager Charlie Montoyo on Wednesday, hours before their home game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

It's a less so reported by the FOX Sports network. The information remains to be confirmed by the organization concerned.

The 4-3 victory over the Phillies on Tuesday night would therefore not have allowed Montoyo to save his position. His troop had a harrowing trip to the American West before reuniting with their supporters, including suffering a four-game sweep at the hands of the Seattle Mariners last weekend. Before hitting the field in the evening, the Jays were ranked fourth in the American League East Division with a 46-42 record.

Montoyo had been in charge since 2019. He featured a file equivalent to the threshold of respectability, i.e. 236-236. In 2021, Toronto totaled 91 wins, but settled for fourth in its division.
