The Tampa Bay Rays unveiled a list of eight preliminary managerial candidates on Thursday and Milwaukee Brewers special assistant Craig Counsell is among the group.
Counsell has been serving in the Brewers front office as a special assistant to general manager Doug Melvin.
Counsell won a World Series with the Marlins back in 1997 and again with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2001.
Tampa Bay is looking for a replacement for Joe Maddon who opted out of his contract and eventually signed a five-year deal to manage the Chicago Cubs.
Among those on the list are Rays bench coach Dave Martinez and Triple-A manager Charlie Montoyo, as well as San Francisco bench coach Ron Wotus.
