Daren Brown

Tenure: 2010

Record: 19 wins 31 losses

Daren Brown served as the interim manager in 2010 after Wakamatsu’s firing, but did not find a way to parlay that into a lasting gig. Brown has been with the organization since 2001 and could be a candidate to replace Eric Wedge.

Unfortunately, Brown’s name only adds to the list of glorified bench coaches who have helmed the M’s in recent years.
