The Rockies interviewed Jason Giambi for their managerial opening on Thursday, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports. The Rockies, who have also interviewed bench coach Tom Runnells for the position, have now completed their meetings with in-house candidates. Team executives have tentative plans to interview outside candidates, Renck reports.
Giambi, 41, remains in the mix for the managerial opening. He has said he’d retire from playing if offered the managerial job, but hasn’t ruled out returning as an MLB player. Renck mentions Tim Wallach of the Dodgers, Sandy Alomar Jr. of the Indians and Mike Gallego of the Athletics as possible targets for Colorado.
