League sources told ESPN and USA Today on Thursday the Padres will hire Tingler to lead the team. The 38-year-old coach was the Rangers' field coordinator this season, working with outfielders and baserunners.
Tingler also spent time in the Rangers' front office in player development and worked two years as an assistant general manager in the organization. He is currently managing Leones del Escogido in the Dominican winter league.
Tingler will replace former manager Andy Green, who was fired Sept. 21 after posting a 274-366 record with the Padres since he was hired before the 2016 season. Rod Barajas served as the team's interim manager for the remainder of the season, which marked the club's 13th consecutive year without a postseason appearance.
Atlanta Braves third-base coach Ron Washington, who served as the Rangers' manager from 2007-14, was also a finalist for the job, according to USA Today.
