The Padres’ manager search reportedly is down to two candidates on opposite ends of the experience spectrum.
Ron Washington and Jayce Tingler will have second interviews for the position and a decision could come next week, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Friday.
Washington, 67, has been in the game for decades and most notably managed the Rangers from 2007-14. One of the most well-respected instructors in baseball, he has been the Braves’ third base coach the last three seasons.
Washington went 664-611 (.521) at the helm in Texas, reaching the World Series in 2010 and 2011 amid a stretch of four consecutive 90-win seasons.
