The San Francisco Giants announced a surprising move yesterday. They fired manager Gabe Kapler. This is the first time that the SF Giants organization fired a manager since they replaced Jim Davenport with Roger Craig in 1985.
Gabe Kapler spent four seasons with the San Francisco Giants as the teams manager. In those four seasons, Gabe Kapler had a record of 295-248, .543 winning percentage, and one playoff appearance.
Giants President of Baseball Operations, Farhan Zaidi spoke on this news:
After making this recommendation to ownership and receiving their approval, I met with Gabe today to inform him of our decision.
In his tenure as Giants manager. Gabe led our team through an unprecedented pandemic in 2020 and a franchise-record 107 wins and postseason berth in 2021.
He has been dedicated and passionate in his efforts to improve the on-field performance of the San Francisco Giants and I have tremendous respect for him as a colleague and friend.
On behalf of the Giants organization, we wish Gabe the best of luck in his future endeavors and thank him for his contributions over the last four years.
It's currently unknown if Gabe Kapler will ever manage in the MLB again. There's certainty going to be options for Gabe Kapler this off-season if he does manage in the MLB again.
