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.
