Padres’ managerial search going a lot of different ways; experience might not be required

Mike Shildt will interview with the team this weekend after being let go by the St. Louis Cardinals last week, two sources with knowledge of the situation said Friday. The Cardinals went to the postseason in each of Shildt’s three full seasons as their manager. He was fired Oct. 15 with team President John Mozeliak citing “a philosophical difference” in how the team should move forward….

The Padres are also said by people familiar with internal discussions to have interest in former Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Angels manager Brad Ausmus. He interviewed for the job in 2019 before Jayce Tingler was hired, and people inside the organization said Preller and Ausmus share some common beliefs about how teams should be run.

Among the names mentioned by sources as a possibility is Mike Scioscia, who managed the Angels from 2000 through 2018. Many people in the league have expressed skepticism Scioscia or Bruce Bochy would take the job under Preller. The Padres have had only preliminary contact with Bochy, who retired a year after Scioscia.
