The Colorado Rockies and manager Walt Weiss are parting ways. The club announced Monday, the day after the team’s regular-season finale, that Weiss would not return as manager.
Weiss’ contract is up, and Colorado apparently wants to find someone new.
Weiss served four seasons as manager. He took over in November 2012 and compiled a 283-365 record. The team didn’t make the playoffs under his watch.
The Rockies finished 75-87 this season, which was the best mark under Weiss. Colorado showed signs of improvement, as young players Trevor Story, David Dahl, Jon Gray and Tyler Anderson made significant impacts, while established veterans Nolan Arenado, Charlie Blackmon, D.J. LeMahieu and Carlos Gonzalez all had big years.
But Weiss won’t get to try to lead that group to a playoff appearance in 2017.
