It is not known yet if Hunsicker will interview for the position. In the past, Hunsicker, the former GM of the Houston Astros, has resisted overtures from other teams to return to the GM role. But that was when Hunsicker’s wife was suffering from a long-term battle with cancer. Now that she has passed away, Hunsicker may be more willing to become a GM again.
With the Rays, Hunsicker has served as vice president of baseball operations, but is considered one-half of the Rays’ two-headed general manager monster, alongside Andrew Friedman.
