Bud Black out for Dodgers manager job, might rejoin Angels

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error If Black isn’t the Dodgers’ next manager, the job will go to a first-timer — either Gabe Kapler or Dave Roberts.Kapler, 40, has one year of experience as a field coach — managing the Single-A Greenville Drive in 2007 — and spent last year as the Dodgers’ director of player development. Roberts, 42, has one year of experience in the Padres’ front office, three as first-base coach, and the last two as bench coach.Coincidentally, the two were teammates on the 2004 Boston Red Sox team that won the World Series.If the Dodgers choose to pair either candidate with an experienced bench coach, it won’t be Roenicke. The Angels appointed him their third-base coach Wednesday, the same position he held with the Dodgers from August to October.Roenicke was the Angels’ third-base coach from 2000-05 and their bench coach from 2006-10. A manager in Milwaukee from 2011-15, he also interviewed to replace Mattingly. Bud Black is reportedly out of the running to be the Dodgers’ next manager and Ron Roenicke won’t remain on the coaching staff.That’s because both are reportedly headed back to Anaheim.Black, one of three finalists to replace Don Mattingly, is no longer under consideration, according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com, and has reportedly taken a front-office job with the Angels. The Angels have not confirmed the hiring.Black, 58, was the Angels’ pitching coach from 2000-06 and the San Diego Padres’ manager from 2007-15. He also was a finalist for the job in Washington that ultimately went to Dusty Baker.last_img
