The Toronto Blue Jays are bringing back a familiar face as their next manager, as sources close to Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun report that John Gibbons has gotten the job (later confirmed by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports). An official announcement is expected Tuesday morning. Gibbons managed the Blue Jays for parts of five seasons from 2004 to 2008, posting a record of 305-305. The hiring makes sense as general manager Alex Anthopoulos was looking for a manager he would work well with, and he and Gibbons developed a close relationship during Gibbons first stint with the club. Since 2008, Gibbons has since been a bench coach for the Kansas City Royals and managed the Padres' Double-A club. Gibbons was looked at for various managerial gigs including Seattle and Pittsburgh since 2008.
