With Tony La Russa taking over the Arizona Diamondbacks organization, there was some speculation as to whether Cincinnati Reds general manager Walt Jocketty would jump ship and make his way out west.
Per Ken Rosenthall of FOXsports.com, Jocketty is expected to remain with the club through at least next season.
Jocketty has been with the Reds since 2008. He was hired on board in January as a Special Advisor and was later named as the teams general manager in April of that year after Wayne Krivsky was fired. In 2010, he was named as the Sporting News Executive of the Year.
Prior to his stint with the Reds, Jocketty had been the general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals since October of 1994. He played an important role in bringing La Russa on as manager. The team was successful throughout his tenure winning seven National League Central Division Championships, including six during a seven year span. They also were National League Champions twice and won the World Series in 2006.Read more... Join the Conversation...
