DeJon: De Gone?

From Tony Jackson on

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers have granted the Baltimore Orioles permission to interview DeJon Watson, the Dodgers assistant general manager for player development, for the Orioles' vacant general-manager position, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed Friday night on the condition of anonymity.

It isn't immediately clear when or if that interview will take place. Watson didn't immediately respond to a text message from Both Watson and Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti declined to comment on the matter.

Watson previously interviewed for the GM position with the Arizona Diamondbacks, as did fellow Dodgers assistant GM Logan White, late in the 2010 season before that job eventually went to Kevin Towers, who had appeared to be the favorite from the beginning.
