San Diego Padres manager Greg Riddoch was granted a one-year contract extension last night.
Padres general manager Joe McIlvaine made the announcement before the Padres played the Cincinnati Reds. Financial terms were not disclosed.
"I'd like to have a 10-year contract. You'd like to have more than one year, but right now it's the agreement that I do it for one year," Riddoch said. "I accept that, I'm happy with it and I'm going to go forward with it."
