“While these decisions are difficult, both parties agreed that philosophical differences related to the direction of the organization brought us to this conclusion.

Mozeliak said that the decision was strictly baseball-related and that the club has some internal options it believes can take over. Mozeliak expects to take several days to let the dust settle before coming to any decisions, but he does not want a managerial search to linger into “mid-November.”

In four seasons with St. Louis, Shildt went 252-199, winning the NL Manager of the Year Award in 2019 and guiding the club to three straight playoff appearances.

The announcement marks just the third managerial change for the Cardinals dating to 1996, when the team hired Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa. Mike Matheny (2012-18) and Shildt (2018-21) have followed La Russa’s 16-year tenure in St. Louis that was capped off with a World Series title in 2011.
