Texas Rangers hire Bruce Bochy as New Manager

A legend is back. One of the winningest managers in MLB is coming out of retirement. Manager Bruce Bochy will become the new skipper for the Texas Rangers. He will be the 20th manager in Ranger history.

The Rangers Twitter page was first to announce the news.

It’ll be a three-year deal for Bochy, as the Rangers continue to move in a new direction. With the signings of Marcus Semien and Corey Seager, the franchise is looking to get back into the postseason for the first time since 2016.

The now 67-year-old skipper hasn’t managed since 2019, stepping away after 13 years of being the San Francisco Giants skipper. He was obviously a legend with the Giants, winning the World Series in 2010, 2012, and 2014. That 2010 championship came against the Rangers.

Bochy has an all-time managerial record of 2,003–2,029, with 1,052 of those wins coming from the Giants.

The team will have an introductory press conference for their new manager on October 28. After the news, Bochy exclaimed how excited he was to begin his new chapter with the team.

“Their vision and commitment to putting together a club that can contend and win year in and year out is impressive, and I became convinced I wanted to be a part of that,” Bochy said in a statement to ESPN. “If I was going to return to managing, it had to be the right situation. I strongly believe that to be the case with the Rangers, and I can’t wait to get started.”


As said before, the Rangers are aiming in a completely new direction. They fired former manager Chris Woodward back in August. At the same time, the team fired Jon Daniels, the president of baseball operations. The Rangers finished 68-94 in 2022, fourth place in the AL West.

The Rangers made it clear they were ready to start ending the rebuild the last offseason. With those signings of Semien and Seager, which cost about a half-billion dollars for the middle infielders. They also signed starter Jon Gray to a four-year, $56 million deal to be their ace.

We knew even with these acquisitions the Rangers wouldn’t compete this season. They still have holes to fill, but they have a well-put farm system that can fill those spots with time and development. But, with a manager like Bruce Bochy taking over, this team’s future is looking very promising.
