Rancho Cucamonga Quakes manager Drew Saylor has earned the Minor League Manager of the Year award by Baseball America. The Quakes are the Single-A affiliate of the Dodgers. They finished the 2018 season with a 87-53, winning the division and going on to win the California League Championship.

Following a rocky first half of the season, the Quakes finished strong then ever, going 52-18 in the second half of the season to solidify a division title.

“It stands out to me because the way our team was performing wasn’t the way we wanted to be. The attitude, the atmosphere wasn’t where I wanted it to be. So my staff and I decided to see it through a positive lens.”
