The Oakland Athletics are promoting third base coach Mark Kotsay to manager, replacing the departed Bob Melvin, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman.

The San Diego Padres hired Melvin as their new manager in November.

Kotsay beat out several strong candidates for the position, including Tampa Bay Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro and Houston Astros bench coach Joe Espada.
