Correa has served as the bench coach alongside former manager Gabe Kapler for a duration of four seasons before assuming the position of interim manager following Kapler’s termination before the final series of the 2023 MLB season.
Giants president of baseball operations, Farhan Zaidi, announced on October 3 that the team would immediately start interviewing internal candidates before proceeding to consider external candidates.
According to a report by Susan Slusser of The San Francisco Chronicle, third base coach Mark Hallberg has emerged as the leading internal candidate, joining a list that may also include Correa, former third base coach Ron Wotus, and bullpen coach Craig Albernaz.
Although the external candidates the Giants plan to interview have yet to be disclosed, it appears that they are actively considering several internal options.
