FOX Sports: Larkin 'surveyed' interest in possible Reds coaching staff

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Barry Larkin has surveyed former Reds teammates about interest in joining his coaching staff if he becomes the next skipper of the Reds, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports

The Hall-of-Fame shortstop has been linked to the Reds managerial job since becoming a roving instructor for the organization.

Current manager Bryan Price is under contract through the 2016 season, as is general manager Walt Jocketty. Rosenthal believes Jocketty is more likely to stay with the Reds because he is close with owner Bob Castellini and has made several well-regarded trades in the last nine months. 

The last Reds' homestand saw an average crowd of 25,981 over eight games. The club's average attendance has been slightly over 30,000 since 2013, but Rosenthal says that number could drop without the attraction of the All-Star Game.

Rosenthal speculates a Larkin hire would be a marketing coup for an organization undergoing a 'reboot'. 

Larkin, a Cincinnati native, spent his entire 19-year career with the Reds as a player. The three-time Gold-Glove Award winner was the first shortstop to compiled 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases in the same season. In his career, Larkin batted .295, with 198 homers, 960 RBIs with 12 All-Star appearances.
