Former Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopolous will be trading in his parka for a pair of beach shorts, heading to Los Angeles to be vice president of baseball operations for the Dodgers.
Former Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos didn’t think a return to Toronto would be the right fit. He has found what he thinks will be a better match with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The National League West division champions announced Tuesday that Anthopoulos has been hired as the team’s vice-president of baseball operations. He joins a loaded front office that includes president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman, senior VP of baseball operations Josh Byrnes — both former GMs — and current GM Farhan Zaidi.
“It’s really exciting for me because I do think it’s a great fit,” Anthopoulos said on a conference call. “And I do think I’m going to improve myself just being with them day in and day out.”
