Martinez Not Among Finalists For Toronto Job

CBC Sports in Canada is reporting that the Toronto Blue Jays have narrowed their search to three candidiates to replace the retired Cito Gaston as manager and that Rays bench coach Dave Martinez is not among them.
Earlier this week, the Blue Jays were given permission by the Rays to interview Martinez for the position. They have reportedly narrowed the search to Red Sox bench coach DeMarlo Hale, Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell and former all-star catcher Sandy Alomar Jr, with Alomar rumored to be the front runner.
Martinez expressed interest in interviewing for open major league managerial positions after the Rays were eliminated in the ALDS.
