Player Notes
Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rays will bring in each of their three managerial finalists for another interview during the week of December 1.

Advice: That means that a resolution to this situation is going to take at least another week and a half. All three are very well respected around the league, with Wakamatsu the only one of the group who has previous managerial experience in the big leagues.

The Rays have narrowed down their managerial search to three finalists: Kevin Cash, Raul Ibanez and Don Wakamatsu.

Advice: Wakamatsu is the only one of the trio who has previous experience as a major league manager. The surprise in this announcement, is that bench coach Dave Martinez, who was widely considered to be the favorite for the gig, wasn't even among the finalists.

Advice: He has the most big league managerial experience of anyone who interviewed, but the Rays have decided to pass. Acta and Craig Counsell have now been crossed off the list, and the Rays reportedly have narrowed their search down to three names.

Evan Longoria exited Monday's game in Japan after being hit by a pitch on the left forearm.

The Rays interviewed Barry Larkin for their managerial opening Saturday.

Advice: Larkin was the final candidate to be interviewed, so Saturday's meeting marked the end of the first round of interviews. The team will now likely narrow its list and conduct another round of interviews before settling on a successor for Joe Maddon. Larkin gained some managerial experience managing Brazil in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, but he hasn't yet held a position as a major league manager.
