The San Diego Padres' managerial opening will be a sought after job this winter. The next skipper will inherit a roster full of stars that should be a World Series contender, so the team will need to make sure this hire is the right one after the Jayce Tingler era flamed out.

Some early candidates for the job have emerged, and the preliminary list includes a few notable names.

Padres Manager Rumors

The official interview group hasn't been hamered out yet, but there's a few skippers drawing interest inside the organization. That includes former World Series winners like Bruce Bochy and John Farrell, plus former Manager of the Year winners like Buck Showalter and Jeff Banister.

This group seems to indicate a wide-ranging search that San Diego will conduct. It's clear, though, that they want someone with experience who can hopefully take this club to the next level.

There'll likely be even more on the Padres' preferred candidates in the coming days as they finalize their initial interview list.
