Padres bench coach Rick Renteria is expected to be named the next Cubs manager on Thursday.
Renteria has been viewed as one of the leading candidates all along. The coach has ties to the Cubs organization due to his familiarity with Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer from their time in San Diego. Former Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch was also in the running for the job. Dale Sveum was fired at the end of September. Wed, Nov 6, 2013 06:40:00 PM

The Cubs interviewed Padres executive Brad Ausmus for their managerial vacancy on Friday.

Ausmus became the sixth person to interview for the position, but is said to be near the top of the Cubs' list. Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer is the one who hired Ausmus to his front office position with the Padres in 2010. He's been a very popular name around the league this offseason, having interviewed for the Nationals and Tigers jobs and being discussed as a candidate in Seattle as well.

The Cubs will interview Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo for their vacant managerial position.

The Cubs had been linked to Lovullo but were waiting for his team's postseason run to conclude. The Tigers are also reportedly interested in giving Lovullo an interview.

Padres bench coach Rick Renteria and former Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch are also among the favorites for the Cubs' job, as they've already been promised second interviews.

Former Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch and Padres bench coach Rick Renteria will be called back for second interviews for the Cubs managerial opening, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Renteria is believed to be the front-runner for the job, and his inclusion on the second round of interviews does nothing to dispute that notion.

Martinez has been the Rays' bench coach for the past six seasons and has previously interviewed for manager gigs in Cleveland, Toronto and Houston, where he was a finalist. "Every year that I have under my belt I'm a lot more confident and a lot more prepared for the challenges of being a manager,'' Martinez said. Former Diamondbacks manager A.J.

Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports that the Cubs are interviewing Padres bench coach Rick Renteria about their managerial vacancy Monday in California.

The Cubs have already interviewed former Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch and former Nationals and Indians manager Manny Acta, but recent reports indicate that Renteria could be the favorite for the job. Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar, Jr. is also expected to get an interview.

Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times writes that Padres bench coach Rick Renteria could have the "inside track" for the Cubs' managerial vacancy.

The Cubs are looking at secondary options after their first choice, Joe Girardi, chose to remain with the Yankees. Wittenmyer notes that Renteria might be the favorite because he is "considered the top available candidate when it comes to developing young Latin players." Renteria will interview for the job next week. Former Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch and former Nationals and Indians manager Manny Acta have already interviewed for the gig. Wittenmyer also adds that Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar is, contrary to other reports, still "in the mix."

The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo hears that Manny Acta had a "very good" interview with the Cubs on Monday.

The Cubs have Joe Girardi at the top of their wish list and are reportedly are prepared to get into a bidding war with the Yankees for him. They need some backup options in case they're unable to land Girardi, though, and Acta appears to be at or near the top of the list. Former Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch has also already been interviewed by the Cubs.

David Kaplan of CSN Chicago reports that Manny Acta is interviewing Monday for the Cubs' opening at manager.

The Cubs are believed to have their sights set on soon-to-be free agent Joe Girardi, but a bidding war with the Yankees isn't going to be easy to win so Cubs president Theo Epstein is lining up backup candidates. A.J. Hinch, the former Diamondbacks manager, has already been interviewed and Padres bench coach Rick Renteria is on the list of upcoming interviewees. Sandy Alomar Jr. is "not a strong candidate" at this point, writes Kaplan.
