ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Texas Rangers have interviewed interim manager Tim Bogar for the job as Ron Washington's full-time replacement.

Bogar and former major league player Alex Cora were the last of the eight planned interviews. The team had no comment beyond announcing Friday's interviews.

After Washington resigned for personal reasons Sept. 5, the Rangers went 14-8 under Bogar to finish 67-95. Bogar was in his first season as Washington's bench coach.

Cora is now a manager and general manager in the Puerto Rican Winter League.

Besides Bogar, the other internal candidates are pitching coach Mike Maddux and Triple-A manager Steve Buechele.

The others to interview were Pittsburgh bench coach Jeff Banister, Cleveland bullpen coach Kevin Cash, Boston bench coach Torey Lovullo and Chicago White Sox third base coach Joe McEwing.
