OC Register: Rays’ Rocco Baldelli on Angels’ managerial list


Recommended Posts

As the Angels close in on a decision on their next manager, Tampa Bay Rays major league field coordinator coach Rocco Baldelli has joined the list of those confirmed to be among the 10 candidates who have formal interviews for the job.

Baldelli’s inclusion was first reported by the Tampa Bay Times.

He joins a group that includes Brad Ausmus and Eric Chavez, both special assistants to Angels general manager Billy Eppler; Houston Astros bench coach Joe Espada, Chicago Cubs bench coach Brandon Hyde and former Gold Glove shortstop Omar Vizquel. Vizquel said he’s already out of the running.

Those are the only six confirmed candidates, with the first round of interviews complete. It’s unknown how many of them will have second interviews.

The Angels could announce their manager by Monday, a source said this week. The World Series begins on Tuesday, and Major League Baseball discourages teams from making major announcements during its jewel event.

Baldelli, 37, has been a coach on the Rays staff for the past four years. He spent seven years as a big league outfielder, mostly with the Rays.

Baldelli has also reportedly been interviewed for the managerial openings with the Texas Rangers, Toronto Blue Jays, Minnesota Twins and Cincinnati Reds. That accounts for five of the six openings, all except for the Baltimore Orioles.
