(WSCR) When the Cubs dismissed manager Mike Quade in an official release, the team included one other key piece of information.

The Cubs explicitly stated their next manager would have major league coaching or managing experience, effectively ruling out Cubs-favorite Ryne Sandberg as Quade’s successor.

David Haugh of the Chicago Tribune later tweeted that Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein spoke to Sandberg to inform him of the Cubs’ plans.

FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal tweeted the Cardinals had asked for permission from the Phillies to interview Sandberg for their managing position.

Sandberg is currently the Phillies Triple-A manager.

Rosenthal later tweeted the Phillies would give Sandberg permission.
