The Tampa Bay Rays and manager Kevin Cash have agreed to a contract extension through the 2024 season, the club announced on Tuesday. The club also has an option for 2025.
“We couldn’t be happier with the impact that Kevin has made on our organization, an impact that extends well beyond our major league club,” said Senior Vice President, Baseball Operations/General Manager Erik Neander. “We’re thankful for this stability and the many advantages that it provides, especially the opportunity to continue learning and improving together.”
“Kevin’s abilities, leadership and character have exceeded our lofty expectations,” said Principal Owner Stuart Sternberg. “I look forward to having him and his family a part of our organization for the years ahead.”
Cash led the Rays to a 90-win season in 2018, their first since 2013. It was also the second consecutive season the team made a double-digit improvement in wins.
In four seasons, Cash has a 318-330 overall record (.491).
The Tampa native is the youngest active manager in the majors.
