Texas Rangers assistant general manager Thad Levine has withdrawn from consideration for the Arizona Diamondbacks job

USA TODAY Sports

Texas Rangers assistant general manager Thad Levine has removed himself from consideration for the Arizona Diamondbacks general manager job, per Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

Levine, considered the #2 guy in the Rangers baseball operations, was mentioned as one of close to a dozen candidates who were being considered for the D-Backs job.  The Rangers have already lost A.J. Preller, who was hired by the Padres to be their g.m., earlier this year, and losing Levine as well would have been a significant blow.
