Giants Rumors: Mark Kotsay Considered Favorite for Manager Job

There is reportedly a favorite in the San Francisco Giants’ manager search.

According to Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic (h/t Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports Bay Area), "word around the industry is that [Mark] Kotsay entered this process as a favored candidate."

One of Baggarly’s sources went as far as to say it would be a surprise if Kotsay, who is currently the quality control coach of the Oakland Athletics, wasn’t the next hire.

Kotsay was a Major League Baseball player from 1997 through 2013 for the Florida Marlins, San Diego Padres, Athletics, Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers.
