11/9 Alomar next on Cubs’ list
The Cubs will next interview Sandy Alomar Jr. on Friday. The 45-year-old former catcher played 20 seasons in the Major Leagues, beginning in 1988 with the Padres. He also played for the Indians, White Sox, Rockies, Rangers, Dodgers and Mets. Most recently, Alomar has been the Indians bench coach. A six-time All-Star, Alomar was a catching instructor for the Mets, and a first base coach for the Indians. He interviewed with the Red Sox on Wednesday.
Alomar will be the fourth person interviewed for the Cubs job, following Phillies bench coach Pete Mackanin, Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum and Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux.
