The Los Angeles Dodgers’ interviewing process is starting to take shape. The latest candidate to take his turn sitting in front of Andrew Friedman and the rest of the front office: Dave Roberts.

Roberts will probably be pretty popular and might turn into a leading candidate thanks to his prior history with the club as a player from 2002 to 2004.

Fox’s Ken Rosenthal is reporting the interview has already taken place.

Roberts, a former outfielder best known for stealing second in 2004 during the Boston Red Sox’s World Series run, has remained involved with baseball since his retirement in some fashion.

One knock some might have on Roberts is his lack of managerial experience. He’s been a first base coach and was Bud Black’s bench coach this past season. He lost his lone game as manager after Black was fired, then was replaced by interim manager Pat Murphy.

About The Author


First and foremost, I love everything Los Angeles. I was born and raised as such. There is video of me, hardly a year old, saying my version of "goooo Dodgers" as my parents cheered alongside me. I could not possibly be more proud to hold this position as we at DodgersNation look forward to enhancing the Dodgers fan experience in any way we possibly can.
