Giants narrow manager search to 3 finalists, per reports

SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Giants have narrowed their search for a new manager to three finalists, according to multiple reports.

Former Phillies manager Gape Kapler, Astros bench coach Joe Espada and Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro are the final three vying to replace Bruce Bochy.

Giants President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi is taking his time making the hire. He has known since February that Bochy would retire.

Others who had been considered were Dodgers bench coach Bob Geren, Giants coaches Ron Wotus and Hensley Meulens, and Athletics coach Mark Kotsay.

The 44-year-old Kapler was fired Oct.
