100) Kai Correa

Kai Correa is entering his third season as the bench coach and infield coach for the San Francisco Giants.

Correa, 33, came to the Giants from the Cleveland Indians. He was their organization’s defensive coordinator in 2019 and he was their Arizona and Lower Level Defensive Coordinator in 2018.

He came to them from the University of Northern Colorado. He was an assistant coach where he was their defensive coordinator, infield coach, third base coach, and recruiting coordinator. He was  at the University of Puget Sound as a head assistant from 2011 through 2014. That’s where he went to college and played baseball as well.

Well, there it is: the top 100 people most likely to manage an MLB team next, in no particular order.

The 30 MLB teams (and possible future expansion teams) have a lot of candidates but, in all likelihood, a fair amount of these people will be managers soon as since the beginning of the 2017-2018 offseason, 21 of the 30 MLB teams have had at least one managerial change and eight of those 21 have at least two changes (including interim managers).
