Ibanez among Rays’ managerial candidates

The Associated Press

Bench coach Dave Martinez and longtime major league player Raul Ibanez are among eight candidates the Rays are considering for their next manager.

President of baseball operations Matt Silverman released what he described Thursday as a preliminary list of possibilities. Others include former Washington and Cleveland manager Manny Acta, Milwaukee special assistant Craig Counsell, minor league manager Charlie Montoyo, Giants bench coach Ron Wotus, former Seattle manager Don Wakamatsu and Indians coach Kevin Cash.

Tampa Bay has been searching for a replacement for Joe Maddon since Oct. 24, when he opted out of the final year of his contract. Maddon was hired to manage the Cubs.

Giants focus on Sandoval

The Giants are planning their offseason around efforts to re-sign Pablo Sandoval.

General manager Brian Sabean told free agent starting pitchers Jake Peavy and Ryan Vogelsong that the World Series champions need time to try to strike a deal with Sandoval before turning their attention to the mound or any other position.

The Giants made a $15.3 million qualifying offer the third baseman won’t accept by Monday’s deadline.

Padres’ Cabrera faces charges

Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera was charged with resisting arrest after being stopped for suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana.
