Report: Ruben Amaro Jr. eyeing job as manager

Ruben Amaro Jr. has served in a number of Major League Baseball roles, and the recently ousted Phillies general manager reportedly is ready to add on another one: as a manager.

According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, Amaro is actively taking steps to be seriously considered for an opening managerial position in MLB:

"Bob Lamonte, the premier agent for NFL coaches and executives, has taken on a new baseball assignment — remaking the former Phillies GM.

"Amaro, who spent most of his eight seasons with the Phillies as their GM, would like to manage, and with the Marlins breaking that barrier with Dan Jennings stepping down from the front office to the dugout this season, Amaro, a Stanford graduate, appears serious about the challenge."

If Amaro secured a job as manager, he would add to an already impressive resume:

Batboy (1980-1983 with the Phillies)
Player (four teams, including 1992-93 and 96-98 with the Phillies)
Assistant general manager (1998-2008 with the Phillies)
General manager (2009-15 with the Phillies).
