MLB Manager Rankings: from Worst to Best

26. Oliver Marmol — St. Louis Cardinals

With Mike Shildt given his walking papers, the Cardinals turned to a familiar face to fill their vacated managerial role. Oliver Marmol is a former Cardinals draft pick who was a member of the organization from ’07-’10. In ’17, the Cardinals named Marmol the team’s first base coach and he’s been working for the club ever since — most recently as the bench coach.

Marmol has some big shoes to fill in St. Louis. Shildt reached the postseason in all three seasons he coached the team, and was still fired following a 90-win campaign. If Marmol can’t get the job done, the Cardinals could be back in the market for a manager in just a few months.
