Arizona Diamondbacks: Chip Hale named manager


The Arizona Diamondbacks announced today that their new manager will be Chip Hale.  That means the Texas Rangers will no longer have to worry about them taking Tim Bogar away from the club.

That’s good news for Texas Rangers because that means they’ll still have a chance to hire him as the manager or keep him as the bench coach if they decide to go with another candidate.   The reason this is good news for the Rangers is because teams cannot pull Tim Bogar away from the club if it isn’t for a higher position than he currently has.

Right now the only team that hasn’t picked a new manager is the Texas Rangers. The Rangers plan to have someone named very soon as their new manager and they could make an announcement as early as this week.

Also, this helps Jon Daniels and the Texas Rangers tremendously now.  They now have the option to pick up an outside candidate like Jeff Banister or Kevin Cash as their manager.  Between the two options Banister makes the most sense because he brings a lot of baseball knowledge, analytics and scouting ability to the table.   That would go very well with Tim Bogar as his bench coach and would give the team a manager who has a lot of experience of the National League and a different perspective of the club.
