Josh Byrnes might be joining a different Los Angeles club. The Dodgers Vice President of Baseball Operations has been linked to numerous openings, and according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, Byrnes is a candidate to join the Angels front office in some capacity.
Rosenthal adds Byrnes' potential role is currently unclear, but it is likely he either serves as the general manager or president of baseball operations. Byrnes was a general manager with both the Diamondbacks and Padres before joining the Dodgers.
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported Yankees assistant general manager Billy Eppler is expected to be the favorite for the Angels GM job, which could leave Byrnes as a candidate to oversee the club's baseball operations department.
Kevin Towers, Tony La Cava, Ross Atkins, Hal Morris, Thad Levine and internal candidates Matt Klentak and Scott Servais have all also been connected to the GM opening. Los Angeles might act relatively quickly in the coming days since it is not the only club seeking new faces in the front office.
