Friar Rumor Mill: 7/11/14
Search for a New GM:
– The Padres announced on Friday that they have interviewed MLB’s Senior VP for Baseball Operations Kim Ng for their open GM position.
– Fox Sports San Diego contributor and national beat writer for bleacherreport.com Scott Miller tweeted that according to sources, the Padres plan to interview 12 candidates for the open GM position (they’ve interviewed eight so far). A few will be asked for a second interview, and the team expects to have a new GM in place by about mid-August.
– According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com and many other reporters, Padres assistant GM A.J. Hinch has pulled himself out of the running for the next Padres GM job. That now makes six who have declined to interview for the open position.
