Major League Baseball's playoffs may be ongoing, but that hasn't stopped several teams from making managerial changes since the end of the regular season. Indeed, the New York Mets, the San Diego Padres, and the St. Louis Cardinals have all opted for dugout turnover instead of the status quo. St. Louis has a new skipper, hiring the 35-year-old Oliver Marmol, but New York and San Diego are still looking. The New York Yankees, for their part, elected to go the other way, signing manager Aaron Boone to a three-year extension.
With the Yankees tucked away, only one wild card remains. The Houston Astros, who are partaking in the 2021 World Series, will soon have to make a call on whether or not they'll bring back Dusty Baker. Baker's contract expires at year's end, and there has been no apparent movement toward a new deal.
Keeping up with the managerial carousel can be a tedious task. We here at CBS Sports try to be as accommodating as possible, so we've designed this tracker to help keep things simple.
