The Dodgers have their new manager and don't seem to want the Blue Jays to be able to do the same.

Los Angeles denied the Blue Jays permission to interview Tim Wallach, FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports .

According to Rosenthal, Wallach's contract with the Dodgers allows him to interview with certain teams -- certain other teams other than the Blue Jays.

Wallach did interview with the Brewers, apparently on his list.

Wallach, 53, has managed in the Dodgers' minor-league system the last four years, including the last two at Triple-A. He will be a coach on Don Mattingly's staff with the Dodgers next season if he doesn't get a manager's position elsewhere.

The Blue Jays have reportedly interviewed a long list of candidates, with Rosenthal adding one more, Padres first base coach Rick Renteria. Also reported to have interviewed or on the list to interview include Bobby Valentine, Bob Melvin, John Farrell, Tim Bogar, DeMarlo Hale, Don Baylor, Eric Wedge, Ron Roenicke, Luis Rivera, Bruce Butterfield and Nick Leyva.
