Washington Nationals manager Dave Martinez gets a two year contract extension (MLB News).
Dave Martinez has been the Nationals manager since 2018 and has a 378-455 record. He was a World Series winner in 2019 when Washington snagged a Wild Card spot and defeated the Milwaukee Brewers, Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals, and Houston Astros in the playoffs.
Since then several star players have left the organization and they have been in a rebuilding process. Baseball America currently has their farm system ranked eighth overall. It appears as if Dave Martinez will be in charge of the next young wave of players to come up through the organization.
According to Ken Rosenthal and Britt Ghiroli Dave Martinez was not immediately available to respond to comments regarding his new contract extension. There also was mention that GM Mike Rizzo was close to an extension as well. The Nationals are off today, August 21, and will start a series against the New York Yankees on Tuesday, so it is possible that they will address the media tomorrow.
