After a 3-15 start, the Reds have given Bryan Price the boot, along with his pitching coach.
The Reds have announced they are replacing manager Bryan Price and pitching coach Mack Jenkins.

Price exits his post with a .419 winning percentage in just over 4 seasons as the Reds’ manager. Also leaving is Mack Jenkins, who replaced Mark Riggins in July of 2016.
Jim Riggleman is the new interim manager, which he was in a prime spot for as the bench coach with previous MLB managerial experience. How long he stays in that role is anyone’s guess, but the Reds have a few permanent options within right now. Former Red Sox skipper John Farrell was brought into the scouting department in the offseason, and roving instructor Barry Larkin would be a fan favorite in the role and has expressed interest in it.
More as we have it.
