Rockies will interview outside candidates for manager

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

Colorado is expected to expand its managerial search to outside candidates in the coming days.

The Colorado Rockies will talk to external candidates for their open managerial position in the next few days, reports the team's official website. Jim Tracy walked away from the final year of his contract when he resigned earlier this month.

There's no timetable for a new hire and an announcement likely won't come until after the World Series, as MLB frowns upon teams making major announcements during the league's biggest event.

The team has already reportedly interviewed several internal candidates, including bench coach Tom Runnels and veteran free agent Jason Giambi. Triple-A coach Stu Cole has also been mentioned as a candidate.

The MLB.com report lists possible external candidates: Cleveland Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr., Padres front office assistant and former Houston Astros catcher Brad Ausmus, Oakland Athletics coach Mike Gallego, Los Angeles Dodgers coach Tim Wallach and Arizona Diamondbacks coach Matt Williams.

The Colorado Rockies finished last in the NL West with a 64-98 record, third-worst in the National League.
