LA exec likely candidate for D-backs GM

DENVER -- Dodgers assistant general manager Logan White is expected to be a candidate for the Arizona Diamondbacks general manager position, but the Dodgers have not yet been asked permission to interview him.

Diamondbacks CEO Derrick Hall, a former Dodgers executive, has said he hopes to hire a GM before the regular season ends. Jerry DiPoto has been acting GM since the July 1 dismissal of Josh Byrnes. DiPoto also is expected to be interviewed. Also rumored on Arizona's radar are Damon Oppenheimer of the Yankees and former Padres GM Kevin Towers.

White has been in charge of the Dodgers' Drafts for nine years and has received industry acclaim recently for drafting and signing first-round pick Zach Lee, who was considered unsignable by many clubs because he was committed to play quarterback for Louisiana State.
