Martinez has been the bench coach for Tampa Bay for the past six seasons and has interviewed for manager jobs with the Indians, Blue Jays, and Astros in the past. Getting the Cubs’ job would take him full circle, as he was originally signed by the club and made his major league debut there in 1986.
The Cubs have already interviewed Padres bench coach Rick Renteria, former Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch, and former Indians and Nationals manager Manny Acta. It’s not known whether the club will add more names to the mix after Martinez.
