According to Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com the Diamondbacks “will begin interviewing general manager candidates over the next couple weeks” and have at least six candidates on their list.
Current interim general manager Jerry Dipoto and assistant general manager Peter Woodfork will obviously get interviews, and Morosi also mentions former Padres GM Kevin Towers, Yankees vice president of amateur scouting Damon Oppenheimer, and a pair of Dodgers assistant GMs, Logan White and De Jon Watson.
Towers could be the favorite simply based on his GM experience, but White is an interesting candidate given the praise he typically receives in scouting quarters. The fact that Dipoto based his evaluation of trade acquisition Joe Saunders largely on his win total and winning percentage would give me some pause hiring him full time, although I’ve liked some of his moves so far.
