Mike Shildt is out as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Thursday.
Shildt, 53, had guided the Cardinals to the playoffs three times, including in 2021, when they rode a 17-game winning streak in September to a 90-72 finish and a bid in the Wild Card Game, where they lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
He had been signed through 2022 after reaching a three-year contract extension following the 2019 season. Shildt was 252-199 in three-plus seasons with St. Louis.
