Rebuilding Royals name Matheny as manager

Mike Matheny, who had spent the year working side-by-side with people throughout the Royals organization as a special adviser, has been named the team's new manager.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The Kansas City Royals have announced that Mike Matheny has been hired to replace Ned Yost as the team's manager. I'm not surprised nor am I particularly enthralled with the choice. Rigidity of thinking is about the last quality you want in a manager in 2019. KC fans have to hope Matheny has opened his mind since he was fired in St. Louis.
