Levine reportedly in mix for SD job
According to John Perrotto of Baseball Prospectus, Rangers assistant GM Thad Levine’s name has surfaced as a candidate for the recently vacated GM post in San Diego. Fox Sports reporter Jon Paul Morosi reported on Friday that the Padres had shown interest in Levine but hadn’t yet sought the Rangers’ permission to interview the 37-year-old.
A number of stories have Boston assistant GM Jed Hoyer as the frontrunner for the Padres job. Another name apparently in the mix is that of Diamondbacks assistant GM Peter Woodfork, who was reportedly the other finalist, along with Levine, to become assistant GM in Texas when Jon Daniels got the GM job after the 2005 season.
