HOUSTON (AP) -The Houston Astros interviewed Los Angeles Dodgers assistant general manager Logan White on Friday, the seventh man to meet with the team about their vacant general manager job.
The Astros will interview more candidates next week. Owner Drayton McLane fired Tim Purpura and manager Phil Garner on Aug. 27 and said he wanted to have a new GM in place by the end of this season.
Bench coach Cecil Cooper replaced Garner, and team president Tal Smith has been the interim GM since Purpura was fired.
White is in his sixth season with the Dodgers organization and his first as the assistant general manager. Before joining the Dodgers, White was the West Coast supervisor for the Baltimore Orioles for seven years. He was the West Coast supervisor for the Padres from 1993-95, an area scout with Baltimore from 1990-92, and an associate scout with Seattle from 1988-89.
White was a minor league pitcher in the Mariners organization from 1984-87.
On Thursday, the Astros interviewed Philadelphia assistant GM Ruben Amaro Jr., Cleveland director of player personnel Steve Lubratich and St. Louis assistant GM John Mozeliak. Wednesday, the Astros met with former Phillies GM Ed Wade, former Montreal GM Jim Beattie and Muzzy Jackson, currently the special assistant to the general manager of the Kansas City Royals.
