The Reds removed Bryan Price from his managerial duties on Thursday morning. Cincinnati currently holds the worst record in Major League Baseball at 3-15. 

Pitching coach Mack Jenkins was also fired, and bench coach Jim Riggelman was named interim manager. The Reds released a statement Thursday morning detailing their search for a permanent manager. 

"At this time, we felt a change needed to happen in order to begin the process of getting this team back on the right track. We realize it is early in the season but feel it is important to be proactive," general manager Dick Williams said. "In addition to these staff changes, we will continue to examine all aspects of baseball operations to ensure we are doing everything we can to improve."

Price spent five seasons as manager in Cincinnati and finished with a record of 279-387. The Reds have finished last in the National League Central each of the last three seasons.
