Charlie Montoyo fired by the Toronto Blue Jays

The Toronto Blue Jays have fired manager Charlie Montoyo.

Montoyo will be replaced by bench coach John Schneider as interim manager for the remainder of the season. Triple-A manager Casey Candaele has been named Toronto’s caretaker manager.

This was announced by the Blue Jays on Wednesday afternoon.

Montoyo posted a record 236-236 in four seasons as Toronto coach.

The Blue Jays have a 46-42 record this season and currently hold the third and final wildcard spot in the American League.

However, they have lost eight of their last 10 games, including a disappointing four-game sweep in Seattle.

This is breaking news. There’s more to come.
