Per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro is in consideration for the Giants managerial opening (link).
Quatraro, 45, was previously the assistant hitting coach for the Indians from 2014 through 2017, and served as the Rays’ third base coach in 2018. The New York native was an All-American as a player at Old Dominion and played for several minor league seasons following his selection in the eighth round of the 1996 MLB draft by the then Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
According to a tweet from Henry Schulmann of the San Francisco Chronicle, Giants president Farhan Zaidi is a “fan” of Rays manager Kevin Cash, with particular admiration for his club’s usage of voluminous data and non-traditional strategies–two areas in which a bench coach would figure to have a prominent role (link).
Other reported candidates for the Giants job include Royals quality control and catching coach Pedro Grifol, former Phillies manager Gabe Kapler, Athletics quality control coach Mark Kotsay, Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens, and Giants third base coach Ron Wotus.
