SAN DIEGO -- The search is progressing quickly for the San Diego Padres' next general manager.
On Monday, before San Diego's 1-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds, the Padres interviewed their second candidate in the eight days since Josh Byrnes removed from the general manager post on June 22.
Logan White, the Los Angeles Dodgers vice president of amateur scouting, met with San Diego officials Monday.
White makes a lot of sense as he fits many of the criteria stated by the Padres. He is draft-savvy, and the Padres are looking to build for the future through the draft.
Over the past four years, 22 players drafted by White reached the major leagues with the Dodgers. His draft picks include pitchers Clayton Kershaw and Chad Billingsley, outfielder Matt Kemp and catchers A.J. Ellis and Russell Martin.
Last week, the Padres interviewed former Miami Marlins general manager Larry Beinfest. Mike Hazen of the Red Sox is scheduled to be interviewed next week, but Jason McLeod of the Cubs and David Forst of the A's declined interview invitations.
