Sandy Alomar Jr. a potential candidate for Rockies manager, according to report

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Colorado Rockies could turn to the former Indians catcher following Jim Tracy's resignation on Sunday.

The Colorado Rockies could look to Sandy Alomar Jr. as a potential candidate to replace departed manager Jim Tracy, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported Sunday night. Heyman also says that the Rockies will take their time with the coaching search.

Tracy resigned as the Rockies manager on Sunday after more than three seasons with the team, with Colorado putting up a 64-98 record in 2012.

Alomar Jr. retired from baseball following the 2007 season, after 20 seasons. He spent most of his time with the Cleveland Indians, from 1990 to 2000, and was inducted into the organization's Hall of Fame in 2009. The Rookie of the Year in 1990, Alomar Jr. was a six-time all star while with the Indians.

The former catcher has been on the coaching staff for the Indians since November of 2009 and acted as the interim manager for Cleveland when Manny Acta was fired on Sept. 27. Terry Francona was hired by the Indians over the weekend, with MLB.com reporting that Alomar Jr. was offered a spot on the new coaching staff.

The Denver Post reported Sunday that Jason Giambi would retire as a player if considered for the manager's position.
