Dodgers make another move -- in the front office

December 8, 2009 |  2:52 pm

The Dodgers, who have made more news this week shuffling chairs in the front office than changing the complexion of their roster, announced today that special assistant Vance Lovelace has assumed the newly created and combined position of director of pro scouting, special assistant to the general manager.

The Cubs' first-round pick in the 1981 draft, Lovelace, 46, pitched 4 2/3 innings in relief over three major league seasons for the Angels and Mariners. He joined the Dodgers as a pro scout in 2001 and was named special assistant to the general manager five years later. In that position he weighed in on roster moves and play acquisitions.
