The San Diego Padres are set to make a major personnel move.
The Padres are expected to make “unconventional choices at multiple levels of the organization,” The Athletic reported on Friday, citing sources.
Daly has no coaching experience whatsoever. Instead, he spent many years working in the front office.
He spent 15 years with the Texas Rangers before joining the Padres two years ago. He worked in international scouting, player development, and worked his way up to assistant general manager.
When he joined the Padres, he was reunited with A.J. Preller, who he worked with at the Rangers. He’s been the assistant farm director this season.토토사이트
Phillip Wellman, who was Triple-A manager, will move to coach the Arizona Complex League at the rookie level.
The Padres have named three Triple-A managers in the past three years, including Wellman, Jared Sandberg and Edwin Rodriguez. All had at least 10 years of managerial experience.
The Athletic reported that Daly has been interested in the Triple-A managerial job since last year.
Triple-A is the most important level for any organization in terms of providing immediate power to the major league club, but it’s especially important for the Padres in 2024.
That’s because two of the organization’s top prospects, catcher Ethan Salas and shortstop Jackson Merrill, are likely to start the 2024 season in Triple-A. They could still make their big league debuts in 2024.
The Padres don’t seem to be emphasizing experience in their managerial interviews. According to The Athletic, the only candidates confirmed to have interviewed so far are senior advisor Mike Schildt, bench coach and offensive coordinator Ryan Flaherty, Los Angeles Angels infield coach Benji Gill, and New York Yankees bench coach Carlos Mendoza. Of these, Shields is the only one with big league managerial experience.
