Blue Jays hire Charlie Montoyo as manager, report says

Montoyo compiled a 1,266-1,142 (.526) minor-league managerial record.

The Blue Jays announced near the end of the season they would not be bringing back John Gibbons as the team's manager. He received the briefest of calls to the Majors with the 1993 Expos, appearing in four games and tallying just five trips to the plate.

Montoyo hustled to rent a vehicle, made the drive to Olympic Stadium, got lost on his way and eventually arrived in the dugout 10 minutes before first pitch. Montoyo has certainly paid his dues, managing minor league teams for 18 years before becoming the Rays' third-base coach in 2015.

Prior to today's hiring, the 53-year-old Montoyo spent the last two decades in the Tampa Bay Rays organization. "Managing a team that represents an entire nation is incredibly special". My family and I look forward to working toward the ultimate goal of winning a championship for this city. The choice of Montoyo shows the Jays are counting on him to have the same influence on Guerrero Jr. that he had with the father more than 20 years ago.

In reality, Montoyo's appointment is in line with the type of hire many teams are going for these days. The Blue Jays announced on September 26 that Gibbons wouldn't be back with the team in 2019.

Montoyo had some strong competition for the job with Houston Astros bench coach Joe Espada, and Chicago Cubs bench coach Brandon Hyde also finalists according to Sportsnet's Shi Davidi. Charlie is a highly regarded leader by so many individuals in the game and we were thoroughly impressed by his experiences and approach as we learned more about him during the interview process.
