Sandy Alomar Jr. To Interview For Minnesota Twins Managerial Opening


Another day, another managerial candidate for the Minnesota Twins. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported on Thursday morning that Sandy Alomar Jr. will interview for the Twins managerial vacancy.

ESPN reported later on Thursday that Alomar Jr. has confirmed that he will interview for the job.

Alomar appeared in 20 different MLB seasons, a majority of which were with the Cleveland Indians. Alomar is currently a coach on Terry Francona’s staff with the Indians.

Alomar made six All-Star appearances all with the Indians in the 1900’s. Alomar will be somewhat familiar to Twins fans having played in 11 seasons for Cleveland and in five seasons with the Chicago White Sox.

Alomar also made appearances for the San Diego Padres, New York Mets, Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers.

Alomar was a career .273/.309/.406 hitter. He appeared in 1324 major league games as a catcher.

The 48-year-old has been on the Indians coaching staff since Nov. 2009. Alomar was the interim manager for a short period between the Indians firing of Manny Acta and the hiring of Francona.

Alomar has been linked to multiple managerial openings before including the current open spot with the Arizona Diamonbacks, which he has also interviewed for.
