Martinez and the Nats have agreed to a three-year contract with an option for a fourth year, a source familiar with the deal confirmed.

The ballclub is expected to tap Chicago Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez to take the reigns after parting ways with Dusty Baker.

Davey Martinez will be announced as the new manager of the Washington Nationals after the World Series, a source told ESPN, confirming multiple reports.

Martinez, 53, served as the bench coach under manager Joe Maddon for the past decade, starting with Tampa Bay from 2008 through 2014.

The short corner was pulled back to Pedro who curled a fantastic strike in off the top left hand corner of the goal frame. Chelsea went into the game on the back of back-to-back losses in the league to Manchester City and Crystal Palace.

Martinez had a 16-year career as a player from 1986-2001 for the Expos, Cubs, Rays, White Sox, Giants, Braves, Rangers, Reds and Blue Jays as an outfielder and first baseman. Since the Lerner family purchsed the club in 2006, no manager had been guaranteed more than two years, not even established and successful skippers like Baker and Davey Johnson. Baker led the Nationals to the first back-to-back division titles in franchise history, but the team fell in Game 5 of the National League Division Series both times. But while the money behind Martinez's deal is not immediately clear, the length of the deal signals recognition of the state of the managerial market (Cora and Ron Gardenhire got three years each to manage the Red Sox and Tigers, respectively). After getting so little time off this year, Ross is said to be waiting until after the World Series is over before even considering anything else for next season. It is believed the announcement is only being delayed out of deference to the Series, and MLB's wish that teams avoid major announcements during baseball's showcase.
