It looks like the Cincinnati Reds are prepared to name their next manager, and they will look to promote within their organization instead of bringing in an outsider:
I have confirmed Bryan Price will be named the new manager of the #Reds. Official announcement tomorrow.

He’s been the Reds’ pitching coach since 2010, and has played a critical role in the club making it to the postseason in three of the past four seasons.
Before coming to the Reds, he spent 10 years as a MLB pitching coach. His first job was with the Seattle Mariners from 2000-2005, then with the Arizona Diamondbacks from 2006-2009.
Price has turned the Reds’ pitching around dramatically, and in his four years, the club has finished seventh, 12th, third and fourth in the NL in ERA.
After the team fired Dusty Baker following their first-round exit in the playoffs, Price was immediately viewed as the favorite to land the job.
