Over the last decade, Martinez has served as bench coach for Cubs manager Joe Maddon during stops in Chicago and Tampa Bay.
Martinez, 53, represents a stark departure from Baker, who was the winningest active manager when his Nationals tenure ended.
Martinez inherits a team trying to get over the hump to reach the World Series.
Martinez, who will be a first-time manager has been given a three-year deal with a club option for a fourth year. Martinez will be the Nationals' second rookie manager in five seasons; Matt Williams won the National League Manager of the Year Award and took the Nationals to the playoffs in 2014 but things fell apart in his second season and he was sacked after missing the playoffs in 2015.
Two division titles, but two early postseason exits, led to Dusty Baker not being retained as Washington Nationals manager. He worked for the Rays as an instructor for a couple years before coming on as the team's bench coach after the 2007 season, working under Joe Maddon. But the Nats were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs both times under Baker.
According to Heyman, the Nationals also interviewed Mets hitting coach Kevin Long and former Red Sox manager John Farrell, with the latter reportedly being unable to handle pitcher David Price in the Boston clubhouse.
Multiple media outlets are reporting the Washington Nationals have chosen a new manager.
Martinez's departure from Chicago continues a trend that has seen the Cubs almost turn over the team's entire coaching staff since being ousted in the division championship by the Dodgers.
No manager has been guaranteed more than two years under current Nationals ownership (since 2006). Along the way, Martinez interviewed for a few manager openings, including to replace Davey Johnson in Washington, a job that eventually went to the hilariously miscast Matt Williams.
