Brewers general manager Doug Melvin is beginning to narrow the search for his club’s next manager.

According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, former Diamondbacks and Mariners manager Bob Melvin and White Sox bench coach Joey Cora are among the finalists.

Melvin began with a list of ten candidates for the position, but only four will be brought back for second interviews. It’s not known who the others may be, but Nationals third base coach Pat Listach won’t be one of them. The former Brewer told Haudricourt that he is no longer under consideration for the job.

Despite not having a manager in place, the Brewers also locked up hitting coach Dale Sveum to a two-year contract. Sveum recently interviewed for the Pirates’ managerial job, but was told Friday that he is no longer being considered. He hoped to be interviewed for the Brewers’ manager job, as well, but Melvin intends to bring in somebody from outside the organization.

    Do Bob and Doug share anything besides a last name? Like, some DNA maybe? Just asking, couse I don’t know…
