The Colorado Rockies have issued the following statement regarding Sunday's resignation of manager Jim Tracy, effective immediately.
"Jim Tracy is a man that has brought professionalism to the Rockies organization since 2009," said Bill Geivett, Rockies Sr. Vice President of Major League Operations. "However, Jim has decided that he no longer wants to move forward as Manager of the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club. We respect Jim's decision, and we wish Jim and his family the best of luck as we begin our search for the right person to become the next manager of our organization."Colorado finished last in the NL West this year and set a franchise record for losses while going 64-98.
Tracy was promoted from bench coach to manager in May 2009. He was voted the NL Manager of the Year that season after guiding Colorado into the playoffs.
The Rockies went 294-308 under Tracy.
