Dodgers begin search for next director of player development

first_img Photos: Los Angeles Dodgers vs Houston Astros, World Series Game 6 WATCH: Corey Seager, Chris Taylor give Dodgers 2-1 lead in Game 6 Miller: 2017 World Series officially becomes ‘epic’ with a heavyweight Game 7 It was Kapler’s first job in a major league front office. He also worked as an analyst for the Fox network and managed at the minor-league level for a year. In 2015, Kapler was the runner-up to Manager Dave Roberts when the Dodgers replaced Don Mattingly in 2015.The Dodgers’ next farm director will be following a unique act.“You’ve got to be able to relate to a lot of different factions and constituents between the front office, the major league club, major league manager, coaches, players throughout the system, affiliates, minor league players, minor league coaches,” Zaidi said. “I think organization skills, communication skills are important. Obviously baseball knowledge and understanding, what it means to develop young talent is critical also.”The Dodgers must also replace Jeremy Zoll, Kapler’s top assistant, whom the Minnesota Twins hired to be their farm director earlier this month. Kapler became the Dodgers’ farm director in November 2014. His approach to the job was unusually holistic. He initiated ideas that included serving organic food in minor league clubhouses, building a chicken coop at Camelback Ranch, leadership retreats for prospects, and hiring at least one Spanish-speaking coach to every minor league staff. SLICK BALLBefore his Game 3 start, Darvish said he had heard the rumblings from pitchers that the ball being used in the World Series is different from the regular-season baseballs. But he did not use one of the game balls for his bullpen session before his start.Darvish lasted only 1⅔ innings in Game 3. His slider, in particular, was ineffective. This time, he used a game ball during his bullpen session in preparation for a potential Game 7 start.“I knew that my slider wasn’t breaking and sharp (in Game 3),” he said Tuesday. “I couldn’t finish my pitches. I couldn’t get that final touch. And then it just didn’t make sense.“And then I read about the ball being slick. I really didn’t know if it was my physical thing and mechanical adjustment that I had to make or the ball. I can’t really say it.”ALSOZaidi declined to comment on the future of pitching coach Rick Honeycutt, whose contract expires after the season. Honeycutt was hired in January 2006, making him the third-longest tenured pitching coach in MLB. …A moment of silence was observed prior to the game in memory of the victims of Tuesday’s terror attack in New York City. …Staff Writer Bill Plunkett contributed to this notebook.

General Manager Farhan Zaidi called it “the toughest job in baseball.”Replacing Kapler wasn’t the most pressing task Tuesday afternoon, the eve of Game 6 of the World Series. But Zaidi said the front office has already contacted both internal and external candidates on a growing short list for the farm director’s job.“We’re going to cast a wide net,” Zaidi said. “I think that process is probably going to take place over the next couple weeks.”Related Articles Whicker: Dodgers extend themselves to extend it to Game 7 World Series Game 7: Dodgers vs. Astros, lineups, starting pitchers, TV info Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
