Torre out, Mattingly in as Dodgers manager

September 17, 2010 | 12:09 pm


Don Mattingly will replace Joe Torre as manager of the Dodgers at the end of the season, two sources with knowledge of the situation have told The Times' Dylan Hernandez.


An official announcement will be made Friday before the Dodgers’ game against the Colorado Rockies.

Mattingly has been the Dodgers hitting coach since the middle of the 2008 season, which was Torre’s first with the team. Before that, they were together with the New York Yankees.

The Dodgers announced earlier this season that Mattingly, who has never been a manager, would guide a team in the Arizona Fall League, fueling speculation he was being prepared to take over the major league club.
