Report: Reds to hire Baker as skipper
By Mark Sheldon / MLB.com

CINCINNATI -- The Reds have chosen Dusty Baker as their new manager and have signed him to a three-year contract, ESPN reported on Saturday night.

Baker, currently an ESPN baseball analyst, has 14 seasons of managerial experience with the Giants (1993-2002) and Cubs (2003-06) and is a three-time National League Manager of the Year. He will remain with ESPN until the end of the postseason.

The Reds are expected to formally introduce Baker during a press conference on Monday.

General manager Wayne Krivsky could not be reached for comment.

Baker, who owns a 1,162-1,041 career record as a skipper, will become the first African-American manager in Reds history. The 58-year-old reached the World Series with the Giants in 2002 and was let go as Cubs manager after his team went 66-96 during the 2006 season.

Cincinnati selected Baker over interim manager Pete Mackanin, who posted a 41-39 record after Jerry Narron was dismissed on July 1.

Throughout the search, Krivsky has refused to name candidates other than Mackanin, who was an advanced scout before taking over the club. It was not known what role Mackanin will have going forward.
