Wallach joins two other coaches from winning organizations — A’s bench coach Chip Hale and Tigers hitting coach Lloyd McClendon — as second interviewees. Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com reported Monday about McClendon’s status as a finalist.
Wallach, the former third-base star, has earned further respect as Don Mattingly’s lieutenant in Los Angeles.
Ex-Mariners Dave Valle and Joey Cora are among others to have spoken to the team about the position.
