Renteria has served as Bud Black's right-hand man since the start of the 2011 season, during which time the Padres have been 40 games under .500. The Cubs also recently talked with Padres executive A.J. Hinch and former Cleveland Indians skipper Manny Acta regarding the position, per Rogers.
Renteria spent five seasons as a player in the big leagues with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Seattle Mariners and Florida Marlins. The California native managed in the Marlins and Padres organizations for seven seasons before earning his first MLB coaching gig in 2008.
Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. could soon surface as a candidate, adds Rogers, who says other names could also be added to the list after Joe Girardi decided to stay with the New York Yankees on a four-year deal on Wednesday.
