Nevin, Kapler join list of high-interest managerial candidates

The Phillies have interviewed Giants third-base coach Phil Nevin for its managerial opening, reports Todd Zolecki.

Zolecki also names the candidates most likely to be of high interest to the Phillies. They are:

  • Nevin
  • Chip Hale – Athletics third-base coach
  • Mickey Callaway – Indians pitching coach
  • Gabe Kapler – Dodgers director of player development
  • Dusty Wathan – IronPigs manager
  • Jorge Velandia – Phillies front-office executive
  • Juan Samuel – Phillies third-base coach

Of all the names, Kapler is the most intriguing. He’s a Dodgers front-office wonk with a passion for analytics and sports science. He also played for a number of years, winning a championship with the Red Sox in 2004. He also works out.
