Dodgers' assistant farm director leaving to join MLB

The Dodgers are losing another member of their front office staff to Major League Baseball.

Chris Haydock, the team’s assistant farm director, is leaving to join MLB to work on international projects, The Times' Dylan Hernandez reports.

This seems less a rats-jumping-ship move than simply moving on to a better position.

Haydock had been with the Dodgers his entire career since graduating from Indiana in 1996. The Dodgers' farm director, De Jon Watson, recently interviewed for the general manager's position with the Orioles.

Haydock had a good working relationship with Kim Ng, the Dodgers' former assistant general manager, who left last spring to join MLB as an assistant vice president to operations under ex-Dodgers Manager Joe Torre.

Ng recently interviewed with the Angels for the general manager’s job that went to Jerry Dipoto.
