ESPN's Buster Olney reports the Blue Jays are "close" to naming their next manager.
According to Olney, two of the final names being discussed are Jim Tracy and Jim Riggleman. This would seemingly fit the Jays' reported desire to hire a manager with a track record, as both have previous major league experience. The Rockies parted ways with Tracy this offseason after a franchise-worst 64 wins in 2012. Riggleman spent last year managing the Reds' Double-A affiliate.
