They lost in Game 7 to the Houston Astros. The Dodgers then we’re defeated 4-1 to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday, October 28th.

Roberts presently has a team option for the 2019 season. Yet, their priority has been to sign him to a long-term deal.

A new contract, according to FanCred’s Jon Heyman, could be worked out by the end of the weekend.

The 46-year-old Naha, Okinawa, Japan native has been the Dodgers manager prior to the 2016 season after spending the 2015 season as the San Diego Padres manager. During his first season with the Dodgers, he was named the National League Coach of the Year in 2016.

Roberts has won 90-or-more wins during the regular season in his three seasons. In the regular season in 2018, the team went 92-71.

The Dodgers went 8-8 in the postseason.

The 2018 campaign record was his second-best record with the team, as the manager. They went 104-58 in 2017.

Los Angeles went 10-5 in that postseason.
