David Bell, the manager of the Cincinnati Reds, has been awarded a two-year contract extension.
The Cincinnati Reds have given manager David Bell a two-year contract extension that will take him through the 2023 season, according to the team.
Bell’s initial three-year contract with the Reds was coming to an end. He signed a three-year contract in October 2018 that included a team option for 2022.
Bell told reporters, “We’ve been talking about it for a few days.” “It’s a fantastic job. My job is one of my favorites. I don’t have anything to compare it to, yet it’s impossible for me to imagine a better situation.”
This season, Bell has led the Reds to a 76-74 record, which puts them in third place in the National League Central. The season is down to its last ten games.
The Reds had a combined 184-190 record under Bell.
Reds general manager Nick Krall remarked, “He’s done a tremendous job with the team we have right now.” “I think it’s only natural that he’ll be the one to lead us ahead. Last year, we made the playoffs; this year, we had a good run and still have a chance.
“I believe we have someone in place who knows how to handle a Major League clubhouse and dugout, and we believe he is the proper person for the job moving forward.”
The Reds went 31-29 during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. Last year’s extended MLB postseason saw the Atlanta Braves sweep Cincinnati 2-0 in the first round.
For the 2022 season, the rest of the Reds’ coaching staff is set to return.
