Miami Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill says Don Mattingly will be back as manager next season.
The decision had been expected, with Mattingly entering the third season of a four-year contract. But the recent sale of the franchise to a group including Derek Jeter had left Mattingly's status in question.
Mattingly and Jeter were briefly teammates with the New York Yankees.
The Marlins finished 77-85 this year, their eighth consecutive losing season. The payroll is expected to be reduced by about one-third this offseason under the new ownership.
