MANCHESTER, N.H. - The Toronto Blue Jays announced Wednesday that former New Hampshire Fisher Cats catcher and manager John Schneider will serve as interim manager for the remainder of the 2022 Major League Baseball season.

Schneider managed the Fisher Cats to the 2018 Eastern League Championship, compiling a 76-62 record in the regular season. It was the team's third league title since moving to New Hampshire in 2004.

Schneider replaces Charlie Montoyo as the Blue Jays manager and inherits an active roster that features six members of the 2018 Fisher Cats championship team: Bo Bichette, Cavan Biggio, Santiago Espinal, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Lourdes Gurriel Jr., and Jordan Romano.
