General manager Jon Daniels said Monday that he and new manager Jeff Banister had discussions with Bogar in recent days and “decided that it is best for us to go in another direction.”
Daniels said Bogar has been offered another position in the organization and “is going to look at other potential opportunities.”
Bogar, Washington’s bench coach, had a 14-8 record for the last-place Rangers after Washington stepped down for personal reasons. Texas finished 67-95.
