Report: Quade in running for Triple-A job
Former Cubs manager Mike Quade is in the running to be the Twins’ Triple-A manager, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
The newspaper reports that former Red Sox first base coach Ron Johnson, former Mets bench coach Ken Oberkfell, former Braves hitting coach Larry Parrish and former White Sox third base coach Jeff Cox are also in the running for the Rochester job.
The Twins are replacing Tom Nieto.
Quade has extensive experience in the minor leagues, having won over 1,000 games as a manager in a career that started in 1985.
The Cubs fired Quade after a 71-91 season.
