Alderson Meeting With Oberkfell, Castillo and Beltran
Sandy Alderson is on the move again and is flying to the Dominican Republic today to interview Triple-A Buffalo manager Ken Oberkfell for the vacant managerial position. Oberkfell, is currently managing the defending champions Escogido in the Dominican Winter League.
According to SNY, after interviewing Oberkfell Alderson plans to visit second baseman Luis Castillo.
Adam Rubin believes that the odds of Castillo being on the Opening Day roster are not great, but that they are certainly better than Oliver Perez’s chances.
I believe that niether of them will be on the opening day roster, and that if Alderson can’t move them, he will indeed release both of them outright.
Castillo is still owed $6 million next season, while Perez has $12 million remaining. COO Jeff Wilpon has already said that he would be willing to eat both contracts if Alderson asks him.
Alderson also plans to meet with Carlos Beltran, on Saturday in Puerto Rico.
