San Diego Padres planning to interview A.J. Preller for g.m. job

Per Ken Rosethal, the San Diego Padres are planning on interviewing A.J. Preller for their vacant general manager job

The San Diego Padres are planning on interviewing Texas Rangers assistant general manager A.J. Preller, according to Ken Rosenthal:

Preller was promoted to assistant general manager from the position of senior director of player personnel this past offseason, and oversees the team's player development and scouting departments.  Preller is largely credited for re-establishing the Rangers' presence in Latin America, and has spearheaded the Rangers' efforts there in recent years.  The Rangers have signed, among others, Martin Perez, Rougned Odor, Jurickson Profar, Nomar Mazara, Luis Sardinas, and Ronald Guzman under Preller's watch.

Thad Levine is also an assistant general manager, though his focus is more on the major league side.  Levine has generally been mentioned more often than Preller as someone who could be poached by another team for a g.m. position, so it is interesting that the Padres are planning on interviewing Preller rather than Levine.
