Ausmus finally gets his Cubs interview, joins interesting mix
Rick Renteria and A.J. Hinch are in play, and so might be Torey Lovullo and others.
Brad Ausmus is in Chicago interviewing for the Cubs managerial position on Friday.
That brings to six the number of known candidates, with the others being Padres executive A.J. Hinch, Padres bench coach Rick Renteria, Rays bench coach Dave Martinez, former Indians and Nats manager Manny Acta and former Mariners and Indians manager Eric Wedge. Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo is also on the radar though he hasn't interviewed yet.
At least Hinch and Renteria are believed to be strongly in the mix among the interviewees.
