Reds, Baker Have Deal
CINCINNATI, Oh. (AP) — The Reds have completed a contract extension with manager Dusty Baker, a source familiar with the talks tells The Associated Press.
The Reds are expected to announce the deal on Monday before they head to Philadelphia to begin their first playoff series in 15 years.
The ballclub approached Baker about an extension during the season. He said last week that the two sides were closing in on a two-year extension.
Baker is only the second manager to lead different three National League teams to the playoffs. The Reds won the NL Central this season, which was the final year on Baker’s original contract.
