Davey Martinez is the Washington Nationals choice to be their next manager, sources tell FanRag Sports.

Martinez will be announced as Washington’s new manager after the World Series. It is believed the announcement is only being delayed out of deference to the Series, and MLB’s wish that teams avoid major announcements during baseball’s showcase.

Martinez, Joe Maddon’s bench coach since 2008, interviewed recently in Washington. Ex-Red Sox manager John Farrell also interviewed.

The Washington Post noted that Martinez had a full-day interview while Farrell’s confab with the team was much briefer.
