The San Francisco Giants will interview former Philadelphia Phillies skipper Gabe Kapler to fill Bruce Bochy's vacant position, MLB Network's Jon Heyman reported Saturday. Kapler, 44, was fired Thursday after compiling a 161-163 record with no playoff appearances in two seasons with the Phillies.

Kapler has a strong relationship with Giants president Farhan Zaidi from their time together in Los Angeles, per the report. Zaidi was the Dodgers' general manager when Kapler served as the team's director of player development from 2014-17. Bochy, 64, retired after 25 seasons as a manager with the Giants and San Diego Padres. He compiled a 2,003-2,029 record, including a 1,052-1,054 mark during a 13-year tenure in San Francisco that included World Series triumphs in 2010, 2012 and 2014.
