SAN DIEGO -- Padres bench coach Ted Simmons will manage the Peoria Saguaros of the Arizona Fall League beginning in October.
The Saguaros will include members of the Padres Minor League organization and players from the White Sox, Reds, Twins and Rays organizations as well.
Simmons is hoping to land a Major League manager job next season.
"I've done everything but manage," Simmons said recently. "This is my third year as the bench coach [second with San Diego], and after three years, either you do it [manage] or forget about it."
