CINCINNATI (AP) The Reds' worst start since the Great Depression prompted a quick hook for Bryan Price.

The Reds fired their fifth-year manager on Thursday because of their 3-15 start, the first managerial change in the major leagues this season. The Reds hadn't changed managers so early in a season since Tony Perez was fired after 44 games in 1993.

Price managed a rebuilding effort that relied on rookies more than any other team in the majors during his tenure. The Reds have lost at least 94 games in each of the last three seasons while finishing last in the NL Central.
