Jim Riggleman to interview for job with Giants

Washington Nationals Interim Manager Jim Riggleman scratches his head during their MLB National League baseball game against the Chicago Cubs in Washington in this July 16, 2009 file photograph. Riggleman resigned unexpectedly on June 23, 2011 because the club refused to discuss a contract extension, the Major League Baseball team said. Riggleman told the team before Thursday’s 1-0 win over the Seattle Mariners that he would quit immediately after the contest unless his contract was extended for another season, according to the Nationals.

SI.com’s Jon Heyman reports that Giants GM Brian Sabean and manager Bruce Bochy called former Nationals manager Jim Riggleman about a position in the organization last night and that Riggleman will head to San Francisco for an interview during the All-Star break.

Riggleman recently participated in pregame and postgame coverage with CSN Chicago during the Cubs-White Sox series earlier this month, but he’s been otherwise out of work (though still keeping busy) since his sudden resignation from the Nationals on June 23.

The Giants hired Lou Piniella in an advisory capacity prior to this season. Presumably, they’d be thinking about Riggleman in more of a hands-on role.
