If hired, she would become the first female general manager within the four major sports.

MLB Senior Vice President for Baseball Operations Kim Ng is set to interview for the San Diego Padres' general manager position, per CBS Sports' Jon Heyman. An assistant GM with the Dodgers and Yankees prior to her post with MLB, Ng is familiar with the inner workings of front offices. Ng would be the first female general manager in any of the four major sports if she was hired for the position.

She is also no stranger to the interview process; Ng has previously interviewed for general manager positions with the Dodgers, Mariners and Padres (when they hired Jed Hoyer). Padres CEO Mike Dee stated earlier today that any final decision on the GM front would likely be made following the conclusion of the July 31 trade deadline.

The Padres are choosing from a pool of candidates that also includes Padres assistant GM A.J. Hinch, Red Sox assistant GM Mike Hazen, Dodgers scouting director/assistant GM Logan White, former Marlins GM Larry Beinfest, Rangers assistant GM A.J. Preller and Yankees Assistant GM Billy Epler. Those who have withdrawn their names from consideration include A's assistant GM David Forst, Cubs scouting director Jason McLeod and Padres VP Omar Minaya.
