Team officials were also impressed with Dodgers first-base coach Clayton McCullough, who interviewed for the managerial opening that went to Showalter, and could look to hire him as bench coach.
McCullough joined Dave Roberts’ coaching staff for the 2021 season after long-time first base coach George Lombard left to join the Detroit Tigers as the bench coach following LA’s 2020 World Series run. Before then, McCullough was the minor league field coordinator after joining the Dodgers in 2015.
