Dusty Baker will not return to manager the Cincinnati Reds in 2014.

Multiple outlets are reporting that the three-time manager of the year will not return. Baker had one-year valued at $3.5 million left on his contract.

The Reds have made the playoffs in three of the last four seasons but never advanced passed the National League Divisional Series round. This year they lost a Wild-Card game to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that Reds pitching coach Bryan Price and Triple-A Louisville manager Jim Riggleman are “two names to watch” as the club looks for a replacement.

The Seattle Mariners, Washington Nationals and the Chicago Cubs are also looking for managers.
