MLB manager stalker: White Sox set to hire Royals assistant; Matt Quatraro, Skip Schumaker Land Jobs


Major League Baseball is nearing the end of the World Series, and teams are filling their leadership positions left and right. The Texas Rangers, Miami Marlins and Kansas City Royals have become the latest in recent days, and the Chicago White Sox have reportedly found their replacement for Tony La Russa.

The Los Angeles Angels have agreed to a one-year contract with Phil Nevin earlier in October, cementing him as their skipper for next season. The Philadelphia Phillies followed suit by giving away interim skipper Rob Thomson a new contract after leading the club to the playoffs. The Toronto Blue Jays also presented a new contract to their own interim skipper, in John Schneider. He too led Toronto in the playoffs. The Rangers and Marlins, meanwhile, have hired Bruce Bochy and Skip Schumaker. On Sunday, the Royals announced the hiring of former Tampa Bay Rays coach Matt Quatraro.

The White Sox were the last remaining team with an opening, but they would have to bring in a longtime Royals assistant Pedro Grifol as new manager.

Below, CBS Sports will follow the managers’ carousel throughout the offseason. In other words, feel free to bookmark this page and come back to it as often as your heart desires.
