By jcfortun Published: October 20, 2009

Go ahead and add "Donnie Baseball"  to the list of managerial candidates for the Cleveland Indians.

Yankee legend, and current Dodgers batting coach Don Mattingly has confirmed that he spoke with the Cleveland Indians and will do so again after the Dodgers' season comes to an end, according to Ed Price at AOL Fanhouse.

The Washington Nationals have also requested to interview Mattingly.

So far it has been confirmed that Bobby Valentine, Class A Mahoning Valley manager Travis Fryman, Class AAA Columbus manager Torey Lovullo, Manny Acta and Mattingly have interviewed for the position.

(UPDATE: Indians general manager Mark Shapiro officially ruled Fryman and former Indians manager Mike Hargrove out of contention for the managerial position during today's press conference.)
