Dave Martinez joins a long list of candidates for the Dodgers managerial opening.
Martinez, 51, has spent seven years working with Cubs manager Joe Maddon as a coach with the Tampa Bay Rays from 2008 to 2014 and 2015 with the Chicago.
“He’s definitely ready to manage,” Maddon told reporters during playoffs. “He understands the numbers; he understands people and tough conversations. He’s really good at tough conversations. He really understands pitching.”
The Dodgers are considering Bud Black, Darin Erstad, Bob Geren, Kirk Gibson, Gabe Kapler, Dave Roberts, Ron Roenicke and Tim Wallach for their managerial opening.
