It appears Philadelphia Phillies’ major-league player information coordinator Sam Fuld will not be in the running for the vacant manager’s position with the Toronto Blue Jays.
According to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, Fuld was rumoured to be in the mix for the Jays’ manager job but reportedly withdrew his name from consideration on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old had an eight-year career in the majors before retiring in 2015.
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that Rocco Baldelli, who worked as the Tampa Bay Rays’ major-league field coordinator this past season, is in the mix for the job.
Baldelli, 37, had a seven-year run in the Majors, mostly with the Rays, before retiring in 2010.
Rosenthal adds there is no current frontrunner for the job and other “unidentified candidates” are still in the running.
Last month, Toronto announced they would not bring back manager John Gibbons after back-to-back sub-500 seasons.
