If the Philadelphia Phillies decide to part ways with general manager Ruben Amaro this offseason, two potential options have emerged.
J.J. Picollo, currently an assistant general manager with the Kansas City Royals, is a New Jersey native and has been mentioned by industry insiders.
Ben Cherington, recently let go by the Boston Red Sox, is another option. He shares a connection to Amherst College with Phillies minority owner and general partner John Middleton.
"That's the one to watch," said an American League personnel man.
