The San Diego Padres announced Monday that manager Bud Black has been relieved of his duties.
The club will immediately begin the formal search for an Interim Manager for the remainder of the 2015 season. Until that process has concluded, Bench Coach Dave Roberts will serve as the Manager beginning with tonight's game against Oakland.
General Manager A.J. Preller will be available for the media at approximately 3:30 p.m. in the Padres dugout.
Time for a change. I believe losing the recent Dodgers series was probably the icing on the cake when they let it slip away.
