The Phillies are getting closer to a decision.
Joe Girardi interviewed again with Philadelphia’s management on Monday for the team’s open managerial job. The former Yankees manager, who is the third known candidate to receive a second interview, is also in consideration for the Mets and Cubs openings.
Girardi is supposed to have a second interview with the Mets, as well. Eduardo Perez, Carlos Beltran, Tim Bogar and Girardi are among the Mets’ finalists.
The Phillies could be looking to make a decision as soon as Thursday during a World Series off day. MLB Network reported that the Mets will not be rushed into a decision.
Another former Yankees manager, Buck Showalter, earned a second interview with the Phillies, as well as Dusty Baker. But Girardi has been presumed to be “the clear favorite” in Philadelphia, according to NBC Sports.
