Colorado Rockies first baseman Jason Giambi will interview for an open manager position with the team for next season, according to a report Tuesday morning from Troy E. Renck of The Denver Post:

He will be the last in-house candidate before the Rockies talk to other candidates. There is no timetable for a hiring.

The team spent two days earlier in October having internal discussions with bench coach Tom Runnells, who is reportedly a candidate for the same manager position being eyed by Giambi.
