Perry Minasian has found his new
Minasian and Washington worked together in the Braves org from 2017-2020. By all accounts, Washington is very respected across MLB among players and coaches but he has not managed a team since 2014. The question remains – why has no one picked him us as manager during all those years? Minasian said he wanted someone who could command a room and presumably he has found just that.
Other candidates for the role included Buck Showalter, Benji Gil, Torii Hunter, Ray Montgomery and Darin Erstad.
