Don Mattingly reportedly gets contract extension from Marlins
Don Mattingly’s job status with the Miami Marlins has been a question this season, and we appear to have our answer about that matter.
Mattingly is getting a contract extension from the team, Daniel Álvarez-Montes first reported on Thursday. The announcement is set to come on Friday.
The Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson says the Marlins like Mattingly’s demeanor and teaching abilities.
Can confirm per source, as @DanielAlvarezEE reported, that Marlins have given Mattingly contract extension. Management values his even keeled demeanor and teaching/mentoring. Announcement tomorrow

Mattingly was in the final season of a four-year deal with the team prior to getting his extension. He has a .428 winning percentage as the team’s manager. They have the worst record in the National League this season, though that is part of their rebuilding process.
