Padres manager Andy Green says Mark McGwire won’t return as San Diego’s bench coach next season so he can spend more time with his family.
McGwire, who hit 583 home runs during his big league career, spent three seasons on the Padres’ staff.

McGwire lives in Irvine, California, in southern Orange County.
The Padres have gone 205-281 (.422) over the last three years, peaking at 71 wins in 2017. The Padres, in fact, haven’t had a winning season since 2010 when they went 90-72. Might be time for a change.
