94) Bryan Price

Bryan Price is going to be the new “senior adviser” for the coaching staff of the San Diego Padres in 2022 after not being in any coaching capacity in 2021.

Price, 59, was the manager for the Cincinnati Reds from 2014 through 2018 when he was fired 18 games into the season after a 3-15 start. Most recently, he was the pitching coach for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2020.

Price is joining his friend, Bob Melvin, in San Diego as Price has served on his coaching staffs before. Price was a minor league pitching coach and, later, a minor league pitching coordinator for Seattle from 1989 through 1999. He became their MLB pitching coach in 2000 and Melvin became their manager in 2003.

Melvin left to become the manager of the D-Backs in 2005 and Price stayed in Seattle through the ’05 season but he joined Melvin in Arizona for the 2006 season. When Melvin was fired in May 2009, Price resigned in support of Melvin. He finished off the season with Philadelphia as a pitching consultant.

Price was hired as the pitching coach of the Reds from 2010 through 2013 before he became their manager while Melvin was with Oakland.
