Good things come when you are apart of the Dodgers organization. For Dodgers Assistant GM Josh Byrnes, he may have an opportunity to be apart of another city known for baseball.
The Detroit Tigers have been in search for a new GM after letting go Al Avila who had served in the Tigers front office for 22 years including seven years as the GM. Among the candidates, Byrnes is considered to be one of the top candidates the Tigers are looking into.
Byrnes had an opportunity two years ago as he interviewed for a GM job for the Phillies, but ultimately ended up staying with the Dodgers.
Sources: Josh Byrnes is among the top candidates currently under consideration by team ownership to lead the #Tigers baseball operations department.

Byrnes has been apart of the Dodgers organization since 2015 as Senior VP of Baseball Operations as a supervisor of club scouting and player development. Since joining the team, the Dodgers have owned the best record in baseball, won six divisional titles with three NL pennants and a World Series championship in 2020.
Byrnes has been apart of the MLB since 1994 with the Indians. He worked his way up to be the director of scouting in 1998 which eventually led him to his first assistant general manager job with the Rockies in 1999.
Winning is in Byrnes DNA, as evident with his time with the Dodgers, but it all began when he moved to the Red Sox with the same role and was apart of the 2004 World Series championship team.
With the track record Byrnes has, it’s no doubt he has the qualifications needed for a franchise looking to build something great. Of course, the Dodgers would welcome Byrnes back once again with open arms if he chooses to stay.
