We told you in Sunday's Tampa Bay Times that Rays coach Rocco Baldelli was a "hot name" for the six current managerial openings, and had already been connected with the Blue Jays, Rangers and Twins.
There was word Sunday morning of formal contact with the Reds as well, the Cincinnati Enquirer reporting Baldelli had been interviewed.
But also that Baldelli was at least the 12th candidate they had talked to, from a field that includes several former big-league managers (Brad Ausmus, John Farrell, Joe Girardi, Jim Riggleman), and also Rays bench coach Charlie Montoyo.
A decision is expected by the end of the month.
The other teams with current openings are the Angels and Orioles, who are also looking for a GM.
