Twins bench coach Derek Shelton is also expected to be considered, as are other potential candidates. Meulens, currently working in the Giants front office, managed the Netherlands to a surprisingly strong finish in the World Baseball Classic and was well known before that when he earned World Series rings as the Giants’ affable, hard-working hitting coach.
Espada has served as coach in a wide variety of places including with the Yankees and Marlins. The Astros bench job under A.J. Hinch is becoming a springboard as Alex Cora preceded Espada in that job.
Espada, you may remember, replaced Alex Cora as the Houston Astros bench coach last November. Before that, Espada spent four seasons with the Yankees, the last three as the third base coach. Espada also served as a scout for the Yankees.
Meulens came up through the Yankees organization, making his major league debut in 1989. He batted .221 with 12 home runs over five seasons for the Yankees.
He was one of six candidates interviewed by the Yankees following the dismissal of Girardi last November.
