With Joe Girardi now off the market, San Diego Padres bench coach Rick Renteria likely will meet with the Chicago Cubs next week to discuss the team’s open managerial position, league sources confirmed.
Girardi agreed to a four-year contract on Wednesday to remain the Yankees’ skipper. His contract had been set to expire at the end of October.
The Cubs spent seven hours with ESPN analyst and former Washington Nationals and Cleveland Indians manager Manny Acta on Monday. They also talked with San Diego Padres executive A.J. Hinch recently.
