Dodgers Rumors: An Insider Believes Los Angeles Could Lose Top Assistant to Interleague Rival
While the Dodgers have little influence on who their cross-town rivals, the Los Angeles Angels, choose for their open manager post, they may wind up having some say in the matter.
According to Sarah Valenzuela of The Los Angeles Times, Dodgers assistant Ron Roenicke is a possible candidate for the Angels' open managerial position.
Roenickle has been with the Los Angeles Dodgers since 2021 and hasn't managed since 2020, when he spent one year with the Boston Red Sox."
The Dodgers special assistant, who is from Los Angeles, told The Times this week he is not too interested in managing again, but would consider an opportunity if it meant staying in Southern California."
The Dodgers would have some say in the matter because the Angels would have to seek permission from LA to even talk with him.
There's no reason why the Dodgers wouldn't allow an interview to take place, but you never know.If Roenicke gets hired by the Angels, it will mark his third tenure as a major league manager.
In addition to his year with the Red Sox, he managed the Milwaukee Brewers for four years from 2011 to 2015.
Despite having a few years under his belt, he has never guided a team to the playoffs, thus it may not be a suitable match with an Angels team that hasn't made the playoffs since 2014.
