The Los Angeles Dodgers have been busy since their Game 4 loss in the NLDS, but not regarding the players on the field.
They removed Ned Colletti from his general manager position, lost Logan White to the San Diego Padres and hired Andrew Friedman to become President of Baseball Operations. Friedman’s first job has become to find a general manager for the NL West champions. Josh Byrnes has been rumored as a potential GM, but nothing has been finalized.
According to Mark Saxon of ESPN LA, the Dodgers could be bringing in another name that has prior history with Byrnes:
I've heard the name Chad McDonald as a possible #Dodgers front office hire. He was with Josh Byrnes in San Diego

MacDonald worked with Byrnes in San Diego and in Arizona with the Diamondbacks and recently left the Padres when Byrnes was let go. Working as Vice President/assistant GM, MacDonald began as the assistant GM in charge of amateur scouting. Before that, MacDonald worked with the New York Mets as scouting director. From 2006-2010, he worked with Byrnes in Arizona as assistant scouting director and chief international scouting director.
The Dodgers could bring in MacDonald as a package with Byrnes and MacDonald could essentially become White in the front office. He has been involved in scouting and was a factor in expanding the Padres international signings.
Once the World Series concludes, the Dodgers will likely begin their hirings and shuffling of the front office.
