Former Washington Nationals manager Jim Riggleman reportedly has been hired as Cincinnati Reds' Double-A manager, MLB.com reports.

Two baseball sources have confirmed to MLB.com that Riggleman will assume the role of manager for the Southern League team, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. Details of the deal are still in the process of being finalized.

Riggleman resigned mid-season as Nationals manager due to a contract dispute. At the time, the struggling Nationals had won 11 of 12 games. As Nationals skipper, Riggleman held a 140-172 record. The 59-year old assumed a role as a scout for the San Francisco Giants after his departure from the Nationals organization. Riggleman has also served as manager in the Majors for the Padres, Cubs and Mariners.
