Jim Riggleman to interview for job with Giants

6 Comments

SI.com’s Jon Heyman reports that Giants GM Brian Sabean and manager Bruce Bochy called former Nationals manager Jim Riggleman about a position in the organization last night and that Riggleman will head to San Francisco for an interview during the All-Star break.

Riggleman recently participated in pregame and postgame coverage with CSN Chicago during the Cubs-White Sox series earlier this month, but he’s been otherwise out of work (though still keeping busy) since his sudden resignation from the Nationals on June 23.

The Giants hired Lou Piniella in an advisory capacity prior to this season.  Presumably, they’d be thinking about Riggleman in more of a hands-on role.
