Oct. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Dusty Baker will not return as manager of the Cincinnati Reds following the team’s playoff loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Associated Press reported.

The Reds will announce later today Baker will be replaced, AP said, citing an unidentified person familiar with the Major League Baseball team’s situation. It’s not known if Baker has been fired or resigned, AP said.

Baker, 64, spent six seasons in Cincinnati, reaching the playoffs three times without advancing. The Reds finished third in the National League Central Division this season with a 90-72 record to earn the second of two wild-card spots in the playoffs, where they lost in Pittsburgh 6-2 three days ago.

Baker had one season left on a two-year contract he signed after last season, AP said. He’s also managed the San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs and was named the NL Manager of the Year three times.
