Joe Maddon and nine other MLB managers on the hot seat

On Sunday, 20 MLB teams will play their final game of the 2019 season.

By Monday, half of those teams could be looking for a new manager.

That’s how much turnover is possible in the managerial ranks.

Some teams have already made the decision to go in another direction. Others are weighing their options. And others still are rumored to be basing their decisions on who becomes available.

A consideration of managers, just before the merry-go-round could begin moving.

Gardenhire says he’d like to return, but that’s up to Tigers

DETROIT (AP) — Ron Gardenhire doesn’t seem terribly stressed about his future.

The Detroit manager said Wednesday he’d like to return next season, but he’ll understand whatever decision the Tigers make. Gardenhire is in his second season at the helm, and it was obvious when he took over that the team would be facing a significant rebuild. Detroit went 64-98 last year and is on pace to lose well over 100 games in 2019.

“I go day to day, that’s all we ever do,” Gardenhire said. “I have a contract for next year. If they want me to come back next year, that’s fine. If they don’t want me to come back next year, so be it.”

The Tigers were 39-90 entering Wednesday night’s game against Cleveland. Gardenhire said the season has obviously been difficult — “my name’s stamped on this thing” — but he’s been through this type of rebuilding process before. Minnesota was in a similar spot toward the end of his tenure there.

Wait- after this season, he wants to come back?
