Indians coaching staff: Sandy Alomar not offered MLB managerial job, ready to assist Terry Francona

Jason Miller

Sandy Alomar didn't get a manager position, but he's happy to be working with Terry Francona and is focusing on his jobs in front of him.

The Cleveland Indians will have Sandy Alomar back as the bench coach in 2013, or at least, that's how things are looking at the moment. As noted by Paul Hoynes on Sulia, Alomar was not offered a managerial position by any team, at least not yet. He interviewed with the Indians, who ended up going with Terry Francona, who has a wealth of experience and dwarfs Alomar's resume by a considerable amount.

Alomar is happy to be back with the Indians, though:

"To be with Terry Francona's staff is an honor," said Alomar, who also interviewed to be the Tribe's manager at the end of the 2012 season. "I can't go wrong going back to Cleveland. I can learn a lot from Terry."

Alomar still could get an offer from another team, and in fact, it's not entirely unlikely. But he's not waiting for a team, he's focusing on what he's doing with the Indians for the time being. "If they want to talk to me about being a manager, they know where to find me," is what Alomar said regarding his current position with the Indians. That's a good mind set to have at this point.
