    Rangers hire Chris Woodward as new manager

    The Texas Rangers have hired Los Angeles Dodgers third-base coach Chris Woodward as their new manager, the team announced Saturday.

    Woodward received a three-year contract with a club option for 2022. He is to be introduced at a news conference Monday.

    Woodward, 42, will take on his first managerial job after three years with the Dodgers, who won the National League pennant the past two seasons.

    A former utility infielder, Woodward played in parts of 12 major league seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays, New York Mets, Atlanta Braves, Seattle Mariners and Boston Red Sox.

    After retiring in 2012, he joined the Mariners' organization and served as infield coach from 2014 to 2015 before signing on with the Dodgers.
