Assistant GM Logan White has a new deal with Dodgers -- and an interview for GM job with Mets
Dodgers Assistant General Manager Logan White will interview for the New York Mets’ vacant general manager’s post, according to a baseball source who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
White will be back with the Dodgers next season in his present role if he isn’t hired by the Mets. With his current two-year contract set to expire this year, White has reached an agreement with the Dodgers on terms of a new deal.
The job interview will be the second of the year for White, who was also a candidate for the Arizona Diamondbacks position that went to Kevin Towers. White was also interviewed by the Houston Astros in 2007.
A highly regarded talent evaluator, White oversaw the drafts that produced a number of the Dodgers’ core players, including Clayton Kershaw, Jonathan Broxton, Chad Billingsley, Matt Kemp, James Loney and Russell Martin.
White will be the fifth person to be interviewed by the Mets, according to multiple reports. Others under consideration are Sandy Alderson, Rick Hahn, Josh Byrnes and Allard Baird.
