Giants interested in Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The San Francisco Giants’ GM search has gone slowly so far, and now we may know why that has been the case: The team has had its eye on someone who’s been busy lately.

According to MLB Network’s Jon Morosi, the Giants have interest in Los Angeles Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi for a potential president of baseball operations role.

Zaidi was hired by the Dodgers ahead of the 2015 season and just completed his fourth season with the team. LA has won the division all four years and reached the World Series in consecutive years despite coming up short. One of the franchise’s big moves under his watch was replacing Don Mattingly with Dave Roberts as manager.

The soon-to-be 42-year-old was a member of the Oakland A’s front office prior to being hired by the Dodgers. In LA, he works with Dodgers president Andrew Friedman to help build the team. It’s unclear whether he would consider a move to the rival Giants, for whom he could take on potentially a greater role.
