Report: Reds hire Riggleman to manage in minors

Jim RigglemanBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Jim Riggleman will be back in the dugout this spring, managing the Reds' Double-A affiliate in Pensacola, Fla., Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports.

Riggleman resigned as the Nationals manager in June after he was told the team wouldn't negotiate an extension. He resigned just after the team won its 11th game in its last 12. After resigning from the Nationals, Riggleman served as a scout with the Giants for the rest of the season.

Riggleman was 140-172 with the Nationals and he's 662-824 in parts of 12 seasons managing the Padres, Cubs, Mariners and Nationals. 

The 59-year-old worked for Reds general manager Walt Jocketty in St. Louis, when he served as the team's minor league field coordinator.

David Bell was the manager of the Reds' Double-A Carolina team last season before being promoted to manager at Triple-A Louisville.
