San Fransico Giants Name Bob Melvin As Manager

Giants Hire Bob Melvin

The San Francisco Giants have announced that they have hired Bob Melvin as their new manager to take over after Gabe Kapler was fired at the end of September. Kapler spent three seasons with the Giants as their manager after taking over for Bruce Bochy. In the three seasons under Kapler, the Giants made it to the playoffs in his first year as manager, where they won 107 games during the regular season but lost in six games to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Giants would go downhill after the 2021 season as they would have a .500 record the following season and finished this year under .500. Prior to coming to the Giants, Kapler spent two seasons as the Manager of the Philadelphia Phillies.

Bob Melvin brings experience to the Giants as he’s spent 20 years as a Manager, spending time with the Seattle Mariners, Arizona Diamondbacks, Oakland Athletics, and San Diego Padres. Melvin has a record of 1,517-1,425 throughout his career and has taken teams to the playoffs eight times in his career but has failed to get teams past the Championship series. The Giants interviewed Alyssa Nakken for the position as well. Nakken became the first full-time female coach in the majors earlier this season.
