“There is a chance of that, yes,” DePodesta said. “But I don’t want to handicap it, because there are some other candidates that intrigue us, as well.” DePodesta declined to say whether Dodgers’ third-base coach Glenn Hoffman, the only other person in the organization with major-league managerial experience, is on that secondary list. “I don’t want to get into (that),” DePodesta said. “I will say there are other guys internally who are on that list that we have considered and are still considering, but I don’t want to get into specifics of any of those names at this point.” Tony Jackson,(818) 713-3675 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Dodgers made public on Wednesday the names of four possible successors to departed manager Jim Tracy, all of whom general manager Paul DePodesta plans to interview over a five-day stretch, beginning Tuesday. The club also has received permission to interview a fifth candidate from outside the organization whose name wasn’t revealed because Dodgers officials haven’t been able to contact him. The current list includes two in-house candidates in Terry Collins, the Dodgers’ player development director who formerly managed the Angels and Houston Astros, and Jerry Royster, the manager of the Dodgers’ Triple-A Las Vegas affiliate. The list also includes Alan Trammell, who was fired by Detroit on Monday after three seasons as Detroit Tigers manager, and Torey Lovullo, a former UCLA All-American and current Northridge resident who is said to be a rising star in Cleveland’s minor-league system.

Tracy was interviewed by telephone on Wednesday by Pirates general manager Dave Littlefield, who told the Associated Press he hopes to meet with Tracy face-to-face in the coming days. “He’s a sharp guy,” said Littlefield, who worked in Montreal’s front office when Tracy was the Expos’ bench coach in the late 1990s. “I have stayed in touch with him over the years and know him fairly well. … We talked about (managerial) philosophy, his views on staff and players … things that are always part of the interview process.” Tracy, whose youngest son Mark is a senior two-way lineman for Claremont High School, has said he is eagerly anticipating attending Friday night’s game against Charter Oaks because the baseball season prevented him from attending any previous games this season. That could push Tracy’s official introduction as Pirates manager to early next week. A development out of Oakland on Wednesday could complicate matters further. A’s manager Ken Macha, a resident of suburban Pittsburgh, failed to agree to a contract extension and now could become a second candidate for the Pirates’ vacancy. As for the Dodgers, DePodesta said he also has a secondary list of candidates that might be interviewed, but that he also could hire a manager after next week’s initial round of interviews.
