Padres interested in Preller
Rangers assistant general manager A.J. Preller is on the list of candidates to be the Padres next general manager. Major League sources confirm that the Padres have permission to interview Preller and are expected to do so in the near future.
Preller is in his 10th season with the Rangers and has been one of general manager Jon Daniels’ most trusted lieutenants. From 2010-13 he was in charge of the Rangers professional, international and amateur scouting and helped rebuild the farm system.
The Padres are looking for a general manager after dismissing Josh Byrnes earlier in June.
