General manager A.J. Preller said Green, in his fourth season, was fired because the team had regressed in the second half.

San Diego was 45-45 at the All-Star break but has played poorly since. The Padres have lost eight of their last nine, including an ugly, mistake-filled 9-0 loss to Arizona on Friday night that dropped them to 69-85. They became the first team to change managers this season.

''We feel like we've got a young talented group that has a chance to be competitive,'' Preller told The Associated Press. ''We made some progress in the earlier part of season, but as the second half went on we didn't see the team getting into a spot where we could see continual improvement.

''We feel like a different person in that chair has a chance to take a young, talented group into a different spot.''

Green was 274-366 since he was hired ahead of the 2016 season. San Diego lost 90 or more games in each of his three full years and is assured of its ninth straight losing record.

Bochy: Padres' managerial job is 'last thing on my mind'

  Bochy: Padres' managerial job is 'last thing on my mind' Bruce Bochy is in the home stretch of a long and storied managerial career that began with the San Diego Padres, and the team's recent job opening has caused some to wonder whether the 64-year-old could return to the team he started with. Bochy announced prior to the beginning of this season that he expected to retire when his contract with the San Francisco Giants expired this winter after 13 years with the club. However, the Padres, with whom Bochy spent the first 12 seasons of his managerial career, fired manager Andy Green on Saturday."I'm not even going there," Bochy told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle when asked about the vacancy.

Padres , Manager Andy Green Agree to Extension. The Padres announced Sunday that they agreed to an extension with manager Andy Green , whose contract was set to expire at the end of this season .

As for Friday night's loss, ''You don't want to react to one game or one moment, but it was indicative of what we've seen in the second half, the last month,'' Preller said. ''Overall when you look at our performance, we feel like we're better than we've been playing. Andy would be the first one to say that.''

Green couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

Friday night's game included 12 strikeouts, two errors by first baseman Eric Hosmer, a bullpen meltdown that led to seven runs in the eighth inning and a mental error during the Diamondbacks' big inning by third baseman Manny Machado, who didn't attempt to tag Adam Jones as he took third on a grounder, allowing Jones to run outside of the baseline to reach the bag.

Although the Padres were rebuilding, the season started with promise after the signing of Machado to a $300 million contract and the promotion of top prospect Fernando Tatis Jr. on opening day.
