AP source: Cards replacing Shildt with bench coach Marmol

  AP source: Cards replacing Shildt with bench coach Marmol The St. Louis Cardinals plan to announce Monday that bench coach Oliver Marmol will be promoted to replace fired manager Mike Shildt, according to a person familiar with the decision. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday night because the team hadn't revealed the hiring publicy. The Cardinals dismissed Shildt, the former National League manager of the year, over organizational differences on Oct. 14, a week after St. Louis lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers on a walk-off homer in the wild-card game. The Athletic first reported Sunday night that Marmol would be introduced the next morning.

Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak pledged a swift resolution to the club’s managerial vacancy. With plenty of coaching talent already in the organization, he explicitly referred to internal candidates who could carry the torch and lead the next World Series squad in St. Louis. That has become readily apparent. Current bench coach Oliver Marmol is expected to be named the 51st manager in Cardinals history on Monday, according to a report from MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal and Katie Woo of The Athletic, which would make him the youngest manager in the Majors

The Cardinals recently shocked the baseball world by firing manager Mike Shildt, shortly after an incredible season in which a 17-game winning streak catapulted them into the postseason for a third consecutive year. Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch took a look at the situation, reporting that Cardinals ’ president of baseball operations John Mozeliak has internal candidates like Oliver Marmol and Stubby Clapp at the top of the list. Marmol has been with the organization as a coach for a decade now, as he became the hitting coach for the Gulf Coast League Cardinals in 2011.

Just 10 days after firing Mike Shildt, the Cardinals have their next manager.

The club has reportedly pegged bench coach Oliver Marmol to replace Shildt, who was fired Oct. 14 over "philosophical differences." The announcement is expected to be made at a press conference Monday at 11 a.m. ET.

RIVERA: Why did the Cardinals fire Mike Shildt?

Marmol has served as the club's bench coach since 2019 and has been with the organization since 2007, first as a player and then as a coach.

Oliver Marmol takes over as St. Louis Cardinals manager

  Oliver Marmol takes over as St. Louis Cardinals manager As Oliver Marmol transitioned into a coaching career with the St. Louis Cardinals, it became clear he had the potential to become a big league manager one day. That day has arrived — a little earlier than expected. The 35-year-old Marmol was promoted from bench coach to the majors' youngest manager on Monday, taking over the Cardinals almost two weeks after Mike Shildt was fired in a surprise move by one of baseball's most stable franchises. “IThat day has arrived — a little earlier than expected.

When the Cardinals announced an out-of-nowhere press conference on Friday afternoon, I thought it would be to announce an extension for the 2019 National League Manager of the Year. But you truly never know what happens behind closed doors. Cardinals President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak refused to expand on what he called "philosophical differences" between Shildt And I don't think the Cardinals will have to look far in the dugout for Shildt's replacement. There have been many names floated around already, but the most realistic one and safest bet, is bench coach Oliver Marmol .

Oliver Marmol profile with bios and photos. Oliver J. Marmol (born July 2, 1986) is the current bench coach of the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball (MLB).

At 35, he'll be the youngest manager in the majors by five years. He also is younger than two of his franchise's cornerstone players — starting pitcher Adam Wainwright (40) and catcher Yadier Molina (39).

Marmol takes over a Cardinals team that went 90-72 last season and made the NL wild-card game thanks to a 17-game winning streak at the end of the season. He replaces Shildt, who went 252-199 in his four seasons at the helm and guided the Cardinals to the 2019 NL Central Division title.

Who else sees Filipe Melo smack him on the back of the head, that dude has always been an A class top level c***, when he was in Europe and even back home in his country lmao the dude is pure evil, that tackle on Arjen Robben also comes to mind. The players of that club have a rule that who gives a flinch must pay a punishment being pranked. He refuses, like a little child, so they go even harder on him, like a buch of little children.

Junior managers who get a promotion often face many problems when they have more authority and responsibility. This is partly because everyone expects them to perform to extremely high standards. On the other hand, most of the staff are clearly dissatisfied with the way management listens to their suggestions. On the positive side, almost everybody is satisfied with the way their manager communicates information. Basically, the rules for writing business are: be clear, be polite, and do not write more than you have to.

How old is Oli Marmol?

When Marmol assumes the role of Cardinals manager, he'll be the youngest manager in the major leagues by a wide margin at 35 years, 115 days. The next-youngest manager in MLB is the Twins' Rocco Baldelli, who will be 40 years, 30 days old on Monday.

Marmol is also older than two of his team's stars — starting pitcher Adam Wainwright (40) and catcher Yadier Molina (39).

FAGAN: What's next for the Dodgers following NLCS loss?

Since 2000, only one manager — Cleveland's Eric Wedge — has been younger upon assuming the role. Wedge was hired when he was 35 years, 64 days old.

It's also the second time this decade the Cardinals will have baseball's youngest manager. Now-Royals skipper Mike Matheny was 41 when he was hired in 2011.

Was Oli Marmol a manager before?

Marmol has been a member of the Cardinals organization every year since 2007. He was a player in their farm system from 2007-10 and then stepped into his first coaching role as the hitting coach for the Gulf Coast League Cardinals in 2011.

Oliver Cromwell is a controversial figure. Should he be seen as the Lord Protector of England, Scotland and Ireland, who saved them from Charles’ tyranny or as a cruel and harsh dictator? Cromwell was a small landowner from Cambridgeshire. In his 30s, he became committed to Puritanism - English Protestants who wanted a "purer" version of Christianity distancing it from existing Catholicism. In 1640, he became a Member of Parliament, and supported those MPs who opposed the king.

Oliver Daemen (born 20 August 2002) is a Dutch space tourist who flew as part of the 20 July 2021, sub-orbital Blue Origin NS-16 spaceflight. At the time of his flight he was 18 years old, and is the youngest person, first teenager, and first person born in the 21st century to travel to space.

He got his first managerial gig in the organization with the team's rookie-level affiliate, the Johnson City Cardinals, in 2012. He went 39-28 in his only season in Johnson City.

The next two years, he managed the State College Spikes, then the Cardinals' short-season Single-A affiliate. In his two seasons in State College, the team had its best two years, going 48-27 in 2013 and 48-28 in 2014.

During his time in State College, he managed future big leaguers Luke Voit, Rowan Wick, Luis Perdomo and Carson Kelly, among others.

In 2015 and 2016, he managed the Palm Beach Cardinals, St. Louis' full-season Single-A Advanced affiliate. The pitching staff for the 2016 club included Jack Flaherty, Sandy Alcantara, Austin Gomber and Dakota Hudson.

His overall record as a minor league manager was 268-225

Marmol got his call-up to the majors in 2017 when he was named the club's first base coach. After two years in that position, Marmol was promoted to bench coach, a job he held from 2019 until being named manager of the big league team.

Did Marmol play in the majors?

The newest Cardinals skipper never played in the major leagues.

St. Louis selected Marmol in the sixth round (202nd overall) of the 2007 MLB Draft out of the College of Charleston. He was taken two picks ahead of three-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove-winning first baseman Anthony Rizzo (as noted by Cespedes Family BBQ).

Marmol was a second baseman, shortstop and left fielder across his three seasons in the minors. He never made it higher than Single-A Advanced. In 262 minor league games, he slashed .203/.301/.282 with five home runs and 68 RBIs.

Marmol's predecessor, Mike Shildt, didn't even play professional baseball, let alone in the major leagues.
