Atkins Says He Needs At Least Three Weeks

Toronto Blue Jays general manager says he'll likely need at least three weeks to fill the team's vacant manager position.

At a season-ending news conference Tuesday afternoon, Ross Atkins said team officials are still gathering information on a "vast number" of candidates and talks have already started with others.

John Gibbons served as manager this past season but won't be returning to the position in 2019 as the team continues its rebuild.

The Blue Jays finished in fourth place in the Major League Baseball American League East with a 73-89 record.
