Don Mattingly and the Dodgers will part ways, sources tell CBS Sports.
The decision is being described as mutual.
Dodgers higherups like Mattingly very much, but it was apparent there wasn't support for the long-term. Word is Mattingly felt he was treated very well by baseball president Andrew Friedman and others, but the sides ultimately decided it was better to move on.
An announcement is expected later Thursday.
Mattingly won three straight division titles with the Dodgers, becoming the first Dodgers manager ever to do that and also make the playoffs in three straight. But Mattingly bore the heavy burden of outsized expectations.
