MLB rumors: Mark Kotsay entered Giants manager interviews as favorite

As the Giants watch the World Series from home, their search for a new manager continues. Replacing a legend like Bruce Bochy won’t be easy, but president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi can’t wait forever.

Interviews have begun, and the favorite coming into the process might be someone who would just have to switch sides in the Bay Area. The Athletic’s Andrew Baggarly reported Monday that “word around the industry is that [Mark] Kotsay entered this process as a favored candidate.” One source also told Baggarly that he would be surprised if the Giants didn’t hire Kotsay.

NBC Sports Bay Area’s Alex Pavlovic first reported on Oct. 9 that the Giants would interview Kotsay, who currently serves as the A’s quality control coach.

Kotsay, 43, had a 17-year MLB career where he spent four seasons—2004 through ‘07—as an outfielder for the A’s. Zaidi was a baseball operations analyst in Oakland when Kotsay played for the A’s.

For those curious as for how one of the managerial searches that has not been resolved yet seems to be going.
