Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that current Rockies bench coach Mike Redmond is drawing interest from the Phillies and Tigers as a potential manager. Both teams have openings after letting go of Pete Mackanin and Brad Ausmus, respectively.

Redmond, 46, managed the Marlins over parts of three seasons, going 155-207 (.428). He was fired in mid-May of 2015 after the Marlins put together a 16-22 record.

As a player, Redmond played parts of 13 seasons in the majors, mostly with the Marlins and Twins. According to Heyman, Redmond is still well-respected around the game for his managing capabilities.

The Mets also have an opening, but they were not listed as having interest in Redmond. The Phillies’ interest is believed to be speculative at the moment.
