Cincinnati Reds pitching coach Bryan Price on Friday became the second candidate to interview with the Miami Marlins for their managing job, and Ken Rosenthal of Foxsports.com is reporting that former manager Larry Bowa also interviewed for the job.
Price’s interview came two days after Mike Redmond spoke to the team about the vacancy.
Price, 50, interviewed for the Marlins’ managerial opening in 2006 and talked to the team in ’09 when it was looking for a new pitching coach.
Price and Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest once worked together in the Seattle Mariners organization.
Price also served as pitching coach for Seattle and Arizona before joining the Reds coaching staff in 2009. He recently re-upped with the Reds.
Bowa also interviewed Friday, according to a Tweet by Rosenthal. Bowa last managed in 2004 and since January of 2011 has been a studio analyst for MLB Network.
Bowa, 56, is the only one of three candidates so far who has managed previously in the majors. Bowa skippered the Padres in 1987-88 and Philadelphia from 2001-04.
