Matt Klentak has not revealed any candidates in the Phillies' search for a new manager, but according to NBC Sports Philadelphia's Jim Salisbury, the early list of hot names includes Brad Ausmus, Tim Bogar and Gary DiSarcina. Ausmus, like Klentak, is a Dartmouth alum. Ausmus was recently let go by the Detroit Tigers after compiling a 314-332 record in four seasons as manager. Both Bogar and DiSarcina spent time alongside Klentak in the Angels' front office under general manager Jerry DiPoto. DiPoto was the Angels' GM from 2011-15, and Klentak was there as assistant GM for most of DiPoto's run. Bogar, a teammate of DiPoto's on the 1995-96 Mets, has spent the last two seasons as the Seattle Mariners' bench coach, getting the job after DiPoto was named Seattle's GM in 2015.
