ARLINGTON http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authentic-dee-gordon-jersey , Texas (AP) — Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels expects to interview five to eight candidates in his search for the team’s new manager.Daniels wasn’t prepared Tuesday to talk about a list of potential candidates to replace Jeff Banister, who was fired with 10 games left in the season. But the GM talked about some of the potential characteristics he was considering in the search.“Certainly this job is managing people, personalities, egos, really develop relationships to where you can get through on a variety of different levels,” Daniels said, two days after the Rangers finished with 95 losses and last in the AL West for only the second time in 11 seasons.The only additional staff change Daniels announced was that assistant hitting coach Justin Mashore would not be back after three seasons in that role.While some assistant coaches could return, Daniels told the remaining staff, including pitching coach Doug Brocail and hitting coach Anthony Iapoce, that the team isn’t going to commit to anyone for 2019 until a new manager is in place.Daniels said the number of interviews for the manager’s job would probably be in the range of five to eight, similar to four years ago before Banister replaced Ron Washington, and could expand if there is not a good feeling about the candidates.As for whether he preferred someone older or younger Robinson Cano Jersey , or a manager driven by analytics, Daniels said there was no “cut-and-dry answer” to that.“Everybody has information now. It’s how you use it, how you apply it, how you can decipher it and explain it in a way to help the individuals, help the team,” Daniels said. “That will be part of it, but I don’t necessarily think you have to be a certain age or a certain background to do that. It’s more people skills than anything else.”Banister and Washington were both first-time MLB managers. Banister won AL West titles each of his first two seasons, and Washington led the Rangers to their only two World Series appearances before he abruptly resigned for personal reasons late in the 2014 season.Don Wakamatsu, the bench coach who became interim manager, is considered a candidate. He returned to Texas last November after four seasons as the bench coach in Kansas City. He previously served on the Rangers staff from 2003-07 and was a candidate when Daniels hired Washington after the 2006 season.Seven position players 25 or younger played at least 106 games this season for the Rangers.“The development of our young players who have come up through our system was a big bright spot for all of us, both in terms of the opportunity and what they did with it,” Daniels said.The Rangers also go into the offseason not knowing if future Hall of Fame third baseman Adrian Beltre will come back for a 22nd big league season. Beltre Felix Hernandez Jersey , who turns 40 next April, has 3,166 career hits and 477 home runs.Beltre, who is not signed for 2019, has said he will spend some time with his family before taking time to make a decision.Daniels said Beltre’s situation would impact some roster decisions, and that he hasn’t talked to the third baseman about what his role would be if he decides to play another season.“I don’t have an answer as far as what date he’ll decide by, or if we need it by a certain date,” Daniels said. “At a period of time we’ll reach out, see where he’s at. We want to respect his process. … Generally speaking, without being bound by the roster, 100 percent love to have Adrian back.” PHOENIX (AP) The Arizona Diamondbacks got two pieces to bolster their bullpen just before the non-waiver trade deadline, a big-time start from Zack Godley and reclaimed their spot atop the NL West on Tuesday.It was a fantastic day until the very end – when some injury news on Jake Lamb gave it a sour twist.Godley matched a career high with 10 strikeouts Hisashi Iwakuma Jersey , leading the Diamondbacks over the Texas Rangers 6-0 to leap ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place.After the game, manager Torey Lovullo announced that Lamb might need surgery to repair his injured left shoulder. Lamb is already on the 10-day disabled list. He met with specialists in Los Angeles, who found fraying in his rotator cuff.”We’re going to huddle up over the next 48 hours and figure out what the best plan is,” Lovullo said. ”There’s a conservative route and there’s also a surgical route. If surgery is the option, I think he would be out for the year.”Lamb was an All-Star in 2017 but is hitting just .222 with six home runs and 31 RBIs this season.The Diamondbacks, though, appear covered at third should they lose Lamb for an extended period. They traded with Minnesota for Eduardo Escobar last week. Escobar has four hits in his first three games with his new team.Arizona (60-49) overtook the Dodgers (59-49) for first place when Los Angeles fell 1-0 to Milwaukee. That came hours after the Diamondbacks added relievers Brad Ziegler and Jake Diekman via trades. Diekman was acquired from the Rangers and was driven from one clubhouse to another by Arizona’s bullpen cart.Godley was the star on Tuesday, though. He allowed only two hits and improved to 12-6, striking out the leadoff batter in each of his seven innings.”I felt good in locating my pitches really well and getting some weak contact, which is awesome,” Godley said. ”I just had a good feel for all my pitches.”Nick Ahmed hit a two-run double as part of a three-run fourth inning to give Godley more than enough support.Rangers starter Bartolo Colon (5-10) was knocked around for five runs and seven hits in five innings. Colon was bidding for career win No. 246, which would have given him the most career wins for a pitcher from Latin America Ken Griffey Jersey , but came up short in his fifth attempt at the record.”It didn’t happen. The most important thing is I feel good and healthy,” Colon said in Spanish. ”When it comes, it will come. I don’t want to put more pressure on myself because it will be worse for me if I think about it.”A.J. Pollock’s first-inning homer cleared the high wall in center field, his 15th of the year and the 24th that Colon has allowed.Arizona took a 2-0 lead on Paul Goldschmidt’s two-out double to drive in Jon Jay in the third inning, then Ahmed made it 4-0 in the fourth when he lined his double into the left field corner to score Steven Souza Jr. and Daniel Descalso.”I got down 0-2 and was able to battle to 3-2 to get one more over the plate to drive,” Ahmed said.Jay singled in Ahmed before the inning ended, and Ahmed raced home on a wild pitch in the sixth to make it 6-0.The Rangers’ four-game winning streak came to an end.BIG LEAGUE DEBUTLeft-hander Jeffrey Springs came on for Colon in the sixth for his major league debut after being called up from Triple-A Round Rock earlier in the day. Springs allowed a run on one hit, a walk and a wild pitch, but recorded his first three career strikeouts in two innings of work.”I was hoping for the ball but I wasn’t sure,” Springs said. ”It’s everything I thought and more.”TRAINER’S ROOMRangers: RHP Chris Martin was activated from the 10-day disabled list after the trade of Diekman and pitcher Keone Kela to Pittsburgh.Diamondbacks: OF David Peralta was held out of the lineup with right shoulder tightness for the second straight night. … RHP Shelby Miller was transferred to the 60-day disabled list with elbow inflammation as part of the roster move to make room for Ziegler. … LHP Andrew Chafin was placed on the paternity leave list.UP NEXTRangers: RHP Yovani Gallardo (5-1) faces Baltimore at home on Thursday after Wednesday’s day off.Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Greinke (12-5) pitches the opener of a four-game series against San Francisco on Thursday. He’s 12-2 in 18 career starts against the Giants.—
