Blue Jays Give Update on Manager's Future

The Toronto Blue Jays were so close to making the playoffs this season. The team was able to win their final game, but had to wait for the Boston Red Sox to lose, and as we all know now, that wasn't the case. While some of the Jays players may have played their last games with the ball club, the same can't be said for manager Charlie Montoyo. 

General Manager Ross Atkins met with the media earlier this week and made one thing clear, 'Charlie Will be Back'. Montoyo is the absolute perfect manager for this team. He's experienced, a player's coach and someone who has formed strong relationships with his young core. 

The team also announced the entire coaching staff is likely coming back in 2022:

They'll all be back and that is again just a testament to Charlie's leadership, to the work that they've put in from three years ago. They've put our players in positions to improve, and that is a lot to ask at this level. It's not just putting them in positions to have good performances, it's putting them in positions to get better. We are exceptionally pleased with all of them. We'll think about if there's ways to tweak job descriptions and help improve upon what is here, but they will all be invited back

The games completed a 91 win season and missed out on the postseason. They were one of the hottest team down the stretch and manager Montoyo may be on his way to some more AL Manager of the Year votes this season. Next year, he'll get another crack.
