Dave Martinez will get another shot at his first managerial gig and he is getting that opportunity from a former boss, Andrew Friedman.

Martinez will interview to be the next manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

“Davey Martinez will be interviewed for dodgers managerial job. Dodger people love [Joe] Maddon, so martinez makes sense.”

This will be the sixth different team that Martinez will interview for a managerial opening. The list of previous teams includes, the Astros, Cubs, Indians, Blue Jays, and of course, the Rays when they ultimately picked Kevin Cash.

Martinez served as the Rays’ bench coach under Maddon for seven season. He also briefly played for the Rays in 2000.

The Dodgers and their last manager, Don Mattingly, parted ways after the season.

    Best luck to Martinez.

    That being said, getting a first gig managing a bunch of prima donnas might be one of those be-careful-what-you-wish-for things.

    Could be the Rooney Rule/Selig Rule at play, or maybe he's serious about putting the band back together. Davey an original D-Ray and a class guy is fast becoming the baseball version of Tony Dungy (who could never get hired despite many interviews because he was so quiet.)
