Dodgers add Nick Francona to their player development department.

The Dodgers have added another name to their player development department: Nick Francona. The son of Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona, Nick previously worked in the Angels’ advance scouting department. He was also in charge of reviewing video replays for challenges last season, his first in professional baseball as either a player or executive.

Francona, 29, has an interesting background that includes three and a half years in the Marine Corps.
