Report: Buck Showalter has interest in Pirates’ GM job

Buck Showalter

It’s been no secret that Buck Showalter wants to get back into baseball. Perhaps surprisingly, he’s looking at opportunities beyond managing, at least according to one report.

Pittsburgh-based report Dejan Kovacevic reported Monday that Showalter is interested in the vacant Pittsburgh Pirates general manager position, though it is unclear if that interest is mutual.

Showalter has many years of experience in the game, but he’s never run a team before. He’d also likely be tied to a tight budget, as Pirates owner Bob Nutting has been hesitant to spend on players during his tenure.

The former Baltimore Orioles manager openly campaigned for a few roles this offseason, but thus far, he’s been unsuccessful. It seems he’s casting his eyes elsewhere instead.
