And then there were four.
Tigers interviewed Padres bench coach Rick Renteria today in Calif for managing job. 4th known interviewee after McClendon, Wallach, Ausmus.— Freep Tigers (@freeptigers) October 31, 2013
And it could soon be five, if rumors are to be believed.
With Renteria, Tigers have now talked to four managerial candidates. Lovullo will make five. I suspect that will be it.— Tony Paul (@TonyPaul1984) October 31, 2013
Lovullo, as in current Red Sox bench coach and former Tigers infielder Torey Lovullo. Since his team just wrapped up the World Series, many believe he will interview with the Tigers soon, perhaps over the weekend.
But could it be that the Tigers have already targeted -- and interviewed -- Jim Leyland's replacement?
If anything happens over the weekend, we'll have the info for you.
