Dave Martinez Reportedly Named Nationals Manager, Agrees to 3-Year Contract

Martinez has agreed to a three-year deal with an option, the source told ESPN, confirming a report by The Washington Post.?The value of the pact, which includes an option for a fourth year, has not been disclosed.
The Chicago Cubs have another vacancy to fill, as one of Joe Maddon's top lieutenants has accepted another job. Ex-Red Sox manager John Farrell also interviewed.
An apprenticeship under Joe Maddon is a legitimate strength on a managerial resumé, and there's no particular reason this won't work.
No manager has been guaranteed more than two years under current Nationals ownership (since 2006).
Martinez had a 16-year career as a player from 1986-2001 for the Expos, Cubs, Rays, White Sox, Giants, Braves, Rangers, Reds and Blue Jays as an outfielder and first baseman.
Martinez gives the Nationals a different look - a fresher face than Baker or Davey Johnson, but a more relaxed leader than Williams. Martinez, who has served as Maddon's bench coach in both Tampa Bay and Chicago, will take over from Dusty Baker, who was sacked following the team's first round exit from the postseason. The Nationals selected Bud Black to replace him but negotiations crumbled and Baker was given the job. When Maddon became the Chicago Cubs' skipper before the 2015 season, Martinez followed him there, where together the pair helped lead the Cubs to the 2016 World Series title, the team's first championship in 108 years.
Davey Martinez will take Dusty Baker's spot for the Nationals. An official announcement is not expected to come until after the World Series, which is typical for such things.
