Earlier this week Bill Ladson of MLB.com noted that Pat Listach was no longer in the running for the Cubs’ managerial opening and now Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal reports that Listach hasn’t even heard from the Brewers about their opening.
Listach was drafted by Milwaukee in 1988 and won the Rookie of the Year award as the Brewers’ starting shortstop in 1992, but general manager Doug Melvin has said that he’d prefer to hire someone with previous big-league experience and Listach has only managed as high as the Triple-A level.
Listach has spent the past two seasons as Washington’s third-base coach and told Haudricourt that he’s now “just planning on going back to the Nationals” after managing a winter ball team in Puerto Rico.
