Last week, Bochy had a meeting with Chris Young, general manager of the Rangers. Texas native Young pitched for the San Diego Padres from 2006 to 2010. In 2006, Bochy served as his manager.
Bochy, 67, was hired in 2007 to lead the San Francisco Giants. He later helped the squad win three World Series. He stopped managing in 2019.
Due to his success record and 36-17 postseason record, Bochy’s hiring ought to be welcomed by Rangers supporters. The Rangers had appeared to be the most likely suitor for a long, despite the fact that he was connected to one other position.
Bruce Bochy is hired as a new manager, according to Larry Brown Sports.
