The Dodgers are going to interview Darin Erstad for their manager job


Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers will interview former Angels outfielder/first baseman Darin Erstad for their vacant manager job.

Erstad had a 14-year career with one almost-out-of-nowhere great season in 2000 but otherwise merely workmanlike production. Still a valued presence on a roster, he was being offered part time jobs before he retired after the 2009 season in order to be with his young family. Since 2010 he has coached the University of Nebraska baseball team, first as an assistant but the head coach since 2011.

Gabe Kapler is viewed as the heavy favorite for the job, but the Dodgers will likely interview a few other candidates before settling on a new skipper.
