Jeff Banister out as Rangers manager

Texas Rangers

The last-place Texas Rangers are making a change in the dugout.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Rangers have fired manager Jeff Banister with ten games remaining in the season.

The Rangers confirmed the news shortly thereafter.

Benister went 325-313 in a four-year tenure as Texas manager. That included two playoff appearances, though the Rangers failed to win a series in either year. He had one year remaining on his contract and after a 64-88 season, the Rangers clearly saw fit to simply move on now and get the building blocks in place with a new manager ahead of their move to a new stadium in 2020. As Banister was one of the managers with shaky job security, this doesn’t come as a huge shock.
