CINCINNATI -- Minnesota's Wayne Krivsky will be interviewed next week for the Cincinnati Reds' job as general manager.
Krivsky, an assistant general manager with the Twins since 1998, was also a candidate for the job in 2003, when the Reds chose Dan O'Brien instead. New owner Bob Castellini fired O'Brien on Monday, saying he wanted to bring in his own man.
Castellini plans to interview between six and eight candidates for the job. Krivksy is the first to have an interview arranged. Reds assistant general manager Brad Kullman has told Castellini that he would like to be considered for the job.
Jim Beattie, hired this week as a special adviser to Castellini, could also become a candidate. Beattie spent the last three years as an executive vice president with Baltimore.
