Texas Rangers executive A.J. Preller has made it to the second round of interviews for the San Diego Padres general manager position, while Los Angeles Dodgers scouting director Logan White is out.
Preller is believed to be the leading candidate for the Padres vacant general manager position. If he does in fact land the job, he should be prepared to get to work on day one as ownership wants to rebuild quickly.ANALYST: David Kerr
Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
