Don Mattingly reportedly signs with Dodgers through 2016

Doug Pensinger

One contract extension down for the Dodgers, two to go.

No more lame duck status for Don Mattingly. The Dodgers have reportedly agreed to a new contract with their manager, signing him through 2016, reported by Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles and confirmed by several others.

The two sides were said to be "making progress" toward a deal on Monday.

The Dodgers have yet to make any official announcement, but there is media availability on Wednesday at Dodger Stadium for the winter development program, and Mattingly will be there.

Mattingly was under contract already for 2014, as his option vested by advancing to the 2013 National League Championship Series. The money of the new contract hasn't yet been reported, but Mattingly was to earn $1.4 million in 2014 under his old deal.

Mattingly, 52, is 260-225 (.536) with one division title in three seasons in Los Angeles and finished second in National League Manager of the Year voting in 2013.

Mattingly will return with his coaching staff nearly fully intact. The only changes are Tim Wallach moving from third base coach to bench coach replacing Trey Hillman, whose 2014 option wasn't exercised; and former Triple-A Albuquerque manager Lorenzo Bundy joining the major league staff as third base coach.

If Mattingly lasts the entire length of his new contract, he will rank sixth in Dodgers history in games managed, behind Walt Alston (3,658 games), Tommy Lasorda (3,040), Wilbert Robinson (2,736), Leo Durocher (1,318) and Ned Hanlon (1,018).
