Kansas City Royals Hit a Home Run by hiring Matt Quatraro as manager

For weeks, the baseball world has wondered who the Kansas City Royals would hire to replace Mike Matheny as the club’s manager. That question was answered late Sunday afternoon when it was announced that former Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro would join the organization as the 18th manager in its history.

With the 2022-23 offseason in full swing, Kansas City has always set a very soft deadline to wrap up managerial talks and make a final decision by or just before the end of the World Series. Not only did John Sherman, JJ Picollo et al. they accomplished that goal, but also acquired perhaps the hottest name on the big league coaching market in the process. An all-time favorite, Quatraro ended up at a team that many speculated could make the final move for him.
