It's no hidden secret that the Toronto Blue Jays have been struggling immensely. Amid their cold streak, the organization has decided to part ways with manager Charlie Montoyo.

This does come as a bit of a surprise but it's clear the Blue Jays needed a change. Unfortunately, letting go of the manager is usually what happens when a team with World Series aspirations fails to live up to expectations.

Toronto has lost nine of their last 11 games and was just swept by the Mariners over the weekend. The Jays finally grabbed a victory on Tuesday night against the Phillies, but it wasn't exactly convincing, either.

Montoyo had been in charge of the team for four seasons, compiling a .500 record of 236-236. Per Jon Morosi, bench coach John Schneider will be the interim boss:

Toronto is currently 46-42, which is good for fourth place in the AL East. They're a whole 15.5 games behind the surging New York Yankees. There is still an entire second half ahead, but it's pretty unlikely the Jays can actually make a run at a divisional title. A Wild Card spot is going to be the way for them to get into the playoffs.

Offensively, the Blue Jays continue to swing it well. Their biggest problem is pitching, owning a team ERA of 4.08. That ranks 21st in the Majors. Although Jose Berrios threw a gem on Tuesday, he's got an ERA over five this season while ace Kevin Gausman is currently injured.

Toronto's front office will definitely need to go out and find some arms at the deadline.
