Per Scott Miller of Bleacher Report, Dusty Baker contacted the Padres about their open manager position but the Padres weren’t interested. Miller adds that Baker is quite intent on managing again.

Baker, 66, has 20 years of managing experience under his belt. He spent 10 years with the Giants between 1993-2002, four years with the Cubs between 2003-06, and six years with the Reds between 2008-13. Baker has an 840-715 (.540) record as a manager.

The Nationals and Marlins reportedly have considered Baker for their vacant manager positions.
