Stan Kasten Says Dodgers Are Still Figuring Out Front Office

[new_royalslider id=”75″]
In a huge move by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday, they announced the hiring of Andrew Friedman to become President of Baseball Operations.

Coinciding with the move was a role change for Ned Colletti from general manager to Special Advisor to Stan Kasten. Friedman left the Tampa Bay Rays for the Dodgers and will decide on a new GM.

According to Bill Plunkett of the OC Register, Kasten doesn’t think the Dodgers are done making moves:

The Dodgers lost De Jon Watson to the Arizona Diamondbacks and crosschecker Roy Clark to the Atlanta Braves, leaving them with some potential spots open in the front office. Friedman could potentially have a few people he would like to bring in, especially at GM.

Kasten also attempted to break down Colletti’s new job, but couldn’t really do so:

With the new people and positions in the front office, the Dodgers will have to settle the roles soon. With their early playoff exit, the off-season began earlier than expected this year and they will have to begin preparing for the 2015 season. One position that will likely remain the same is manager, as it was reported that Friedman will stick with Don Mattingly.

Colletti has been with the team for nine seasons and built teams that reached the postseason five times in that time. The Dodgers have failed to reach the World Series in those five playoff appearances.
