Report: D-backs to interview former player Alex Cora for manager position
FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman is reporting that the team has scheduled an interview with former big leaguer Alex Cora.
Worth noting that Cora has extensive ties to new D-backs’ general manager Mike Hazen. Hazen was named as the club’s new general manager and executive vice president back on Oct. 16.
Cora spent 14 years in the majors, playing for six organizations: Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox, New York Mets, Texas Rangers and Washington Nationals.
According to Heyman, Cora interviewed for several managerial positions last offseason, but did not secure a job.
- With Cardinals’ win over Giants, D-backs knocked out of NL Wild Card race
- D-backs’ elimination number down to 1 after Saturday’s loss to Rockies
- Patrick Corbin’s 44-pitch third inning costs D-backs in loss to Rockies
- Saturday may have been Corbin’s last Chase Field start as a Diamondback
- Diamondbacks bullpen has rough eighth inning in loss to Rockies
