Manager Roundup: Marlins, Pirates, Blue Jays

The Braves hired Fredi Gonzalez and the Mariners chose Eric Wedge, leaving the Marlins, Pirates, Blue Jays, Brewers, Cubs, and Mets with managerial openings.  The latest:

Marlins

Bo Porter "has emerged as the frontrunner," heard MLB.com's Joe Frisaro.  Frisaro says Porter "has been making inquiries about candidates for his coaching staff."  Edwin Rodriguez remains in the mix despite not speaking with the team since the end of the season.

Pirates

John Gibbons is "a serious candidate," says ESPN's Buster Olney.  Others linked to the Bucs in the past: Porter, Dale Sveum, Ken Macha, Jeff Banister, Bobby Valentine, and Carlos Tosca.

Blue Jays

Red Sox third base coach Tim Bogar is no longer a candidate, tweets Maureen Mullen.  The Jays have been linked to more than a dozen names.  One of those, Rick Renteria, was announced as the Padres' new bench coach today.

Brewers

MLB.com's Adam McCalvy profiled eight candidates who have been linked to the Brewers.  Bob Melvin is the favorite, in the opinion of a few baseball writers.

White Sox bench coach Joey Cora will interview for the job on Tuesday, writes Mark Gonzales of the Chicago TribuneUpdated at 4:11pm.

Nothing new on the Cubs, and it's too early for the Mets, but we'll keep you posted on all manager rumors here.
