MLB: Padres fire GM before game
SAN DIEGO (AP) — A front-office shakeup had no impact on the San Diego Padres’ performance.
After the team announced general manager Josh Byrnes was fired minutes before the first pitch with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Padres put up another punchless performance in a 2-1 loss against Hyun-Jin Ryu.
Padres Executive Chairman Ron Fowler made it clear that the ownership group was not happy with the product on the field.
Dee added that manager Bud Black has been told that his job is safe at least through the end of the season.
