Pirates Manager Candidate Bo Porter Is 'Frontrunner' For Marlins Job

Via Pirates Prospects, Pirates managerial candidate Bo Porter is the “frontrunner” for the Marlins managerial job.

Porter, a former big league outfielder, was the Marlins’ third base/outfield coach from 2007-09, before he joined the Arizona staff in 2010.

Numerous sources confirmed the Marlins have serious interest in Porter, who is regarded as a strong teacher of fundamentals. Known for being well prepared, the 38-year-old already has been making inquiries about candidates for his coaching staff.

The Pirates have interviewed seven candidates, including Porter and Eric Wedge, who has already taken the manager job with the Seattle Mariners.
