Toronto Blue Jays hire Don Mattingly as bench coach

Don Mattingly is joining the Blue Jays as bench coach to manager John Schneider, the team announced Wednesday.

The former New York Yankees slugger, a six-time All-Star, joins the Blue Jays after seven seasons as manager of the Miami Marlins, where he won National League Manager of the Year honors in 2020.

Mattingly previously spent five seasons as manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, winning three division titles in that span. He also worked as hitting coach and bench coach for the Yankees and as hitting coach of the Dodgers before his managerial stint in Los Angeles.

The Mattingly Curse is coming to Toronto!


- Yankees player from 1982-1995. The Yankees made it to the World Series the year before and the year after he was on the roster (1981 and 1996), but never while he was there.

- Yankees bench/hitting coach from 2004-2007. They made it to the World Series in 2003 and 2009, but never while he was there.

- Dodgers hitting coach/advisor/manager from 2008-2015. They never made it to the World Series during his time there, but did in 2017 after he left.

- The Marlins manager from 2016-2022. They never made it to the World Series during his time there (though I doubt his curse affected it too much).

If the Marlins make the World Series in the next year or two...

Burnishing his HOF credentials. He needs a stint in the league office or even a GM role to round out his application for the Joe Torre wing of the Hall.

But good for him. It's tough to do that after so many years in the driver's seat

I don't think anything short of managing a couple of WS winners will significantly enhance Mattingly's HOF candidacy.
