Padres deny Tingler’s reported firing, call it ‘premature’ originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The San Diego Padres have denied a report that manager Jayce Tingler will be relieved of his duties ahead of Saturday’s game against the Giants. MLB Network Insider Jon Heyman first reported the news Saturday afternoon citing league sources.

Expectations were high for San Diego in 2021, as they were commonly seen as the Los Angeles Dodgers’ top competition in the NL West race heading into the season.

The Giants instead came out of nowhere and have paced the division just about the entire season, while San Diego has collapsed over the final few months of the season.

Tensions seemed to flare up several weeks ago when the Padres’ top two stars engaged in a visible shouting match in the dugout, as Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. had to be separated by teammates.

The decision either way on Tingler’s future likely won’t be made official until after Sunday’s season finale at Oracle Park. 

Regardless, Tingler and the Padres certainly fell short of expectations this season.
