Regardless of their worst season in practically three a long time, the St. Louis Cardinals should not about to make a managerial change simply but.
Addressing reporters on Friday, Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak spoke on the job standing of supervisor Oliver Marmol. Mozeliak revealed that Marmol will stay the crew’s supervisor for the 2024 season.
“I do assist him,” Mozeliak stated of Marmol, per Katie Woo of The Athletic. “I do know he’ll be again subsequent 12 months. I believe the job he does is nice.”
The Cardinals employed the 37-year-old Marmol to be their supervisor lower than two years in the past. He additionally did a fantastic job in his first season in cost, main St. Louis to a 93-win season and a division title in 2022.
However that doesn’t make the crew’s 2023 catastrophe any simpler to abdomen. The Cardinals sit on the very backside of the NL Central (65-81) with a profitable share (.445) that places them on tempo for his or her worst end since 1995 (when star infielder Nolan Arenado was 4 years previous).
Marmol may not be the issue, although, because the entrance workplace handed him a mismatched roster with a harmful scarcity of efficient beginning pitching.
