Blue Jays manager search: Tim Wallach in, Brad Ausmus out

Jeff Golden

Other possible candidates are a "tightly held secret" for now.

The Toronto Blue Jays have begun to filter through possible managerial candidates, choosing to interview Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach and but not Padres special assistant Brad Ausmus, reports Shi Davidi of Sportsnet:

The Toronto Blue Jays' still-developing list of managerial candidates includes Los Angeles Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach but not San Diego Padres special assistant Brad Ausmus.

Other potential candidates are a tightly held secret.

The Blue Jays will interview Wallach but not Ausmus because they are looking for someone with previous managerial experience either in the majors or minors. While the other names up for the job are officially under-wraps, Davidi speculates that several of the managerial candidates interviewed for the position in 2010 will be candidates once again. This list includes Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr., Orioles coach DeMarlo Hale and Blue Jays bench coach Brian Butterfield.

Two recently axed managers, Manny Acta and Jim Tracy, are not believed to be in the running for the Blue Jays’ vacancy at the moment.
