The Astros will interview Phil Nevin for their open managerial gig

Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports that the Astros have asked the Dbacks permission to interview Phil Nevin for their managerial job. Nevin is currently the manager for the Dbacks Triple-A team in Reno.

Nevin has a lot of minor league managing experience. He served three seasons at Triple-A Toledo before Arizona hired him before this season. Heck, if Kirk Gibson gets fired, he may have a shot at the Dbacks top job too.

Oh, and in keeping with the news of the day: Nevin was the number one overall pick in the 1992 draft. A few slots ahead of Derek Jeter. Which caused some consternation at the time, and especially since.
