D-backs' candidates for manager's job up to 11

D-backs' candidates for manager's job up to 11

PHOENIX -- The D-backs received permission to talk to Rangers interim manager Tim Bogar, bringing the list of candidates to fill their vacant managing job to 11, and it appears they are not planning any further additions, though, that could always change.

The candidates are Sandy Alomar Jr., Jay Bell, Bogar, Lorenzo Bundy, Andy Green, Chip Hale, Joe McEwing, Phil Nevin, Jim Tracy, Don Wakamatsu and Turner Ward.

The D-backs dismissed manager Kirk Gibson on Sept. 26.

Bogar spent four years on the Red Sox's coaching staff before managing the Rangers' Double-A team in 2013. He joined the Rangers' big league staff as bench coach last year.

When Rangers manager Ron Washington resigned with four weeks to go in the regular season, Bogar took over and compiled a 14-8 record.

Bogar is one of eight candidates for the Rangers' managerial vacancy.

McEwing and Bogar are the only two candidates to be on both the Rangers' and D-backs' lists.
