Joe Maddon's agent says ex-Rays manager prepared to sit out 2015
The agent for ex-Rays manager Joe Maddon says his client may not manage next season.
“Joe is prepared not to manage,” Maddon's agent, Alan Nero, told a Chicago radio station Saturday.
“I actually had conversations with about 15 GMs yesterday, some of them just wondering if Joe would take a high-level front office position,” Nero added.
Maddon's departure from Tampa Bay fueled speculation that he would reunite with former Rays VP Andrew Friedman, who was recently named the Dodgers' president of baseball operations. Friedman reiterated Friday that Don Mattingly would return in 2015 to manage the Dodgers.
