Retired manager Bruce Bochy reportedly met with Texas Rangers general manager Chris Young on Thursday in Nashville, Tenn., according to The Athletic.

The Rangers are in the process of hiring a new manager and Young is familiar with Bochy. Young was a pitcher for the San Diego Padres in 2006 when Bochy was the club’s manager.

It was not immediately known if the 67-year-old Bochy will officially interview for the job. He reportedly lives in Nashville now, hence Young’s trip to the city.

Bochy won three World Series titles (2010, 2012, 2014) in 13 seasons (2007-19) with the San Francisco Giants before retiring after the 2019 season.

In San Diego, Bochy led the Padres to the 1998 World Series between four postseasons from 1995-2006.

Overall, Bochy has a record of 2,003-2,029 as a major league manager. He is one of 12 managers who have won over 2,000 games.

The Rangers went 68-94 this season and Chris Woodward was fired at 51-63 in his fourth season as coach. Tony Beasley (17-31) finished the season on an interim basis.
