LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers vice president of amateur scouting Logan White on Monday interviewed for the vacant general manager position in San Diego, the Padres announced today.

White has been with the Dodgers since 2002, running the June draft all 13 years he has been with the Dodgers. In addition, White headed the club's international scouting department from 2002-2012, and was a key figure in signing Takashi Saito, Hiroki Kuroda, Yasiel Puig and Hyun-Jin Ryu, among others.

This isn't the first time White has interviewed for a general manager position. He interviewed with the Astros in 2007 and 2010, and also in 2010 with the Mets and Diamondbacks.

Prior to joining the Dodgers, White was a west coast supervisor for the Orioles from 1995-2002 and held the same position with the Padres from 1993-95. He was an area scout with the Orioles from 1990-92 and an associate scout with the Mariners in 1988-89 after his four years as a minor league pitcher in Seattle's organization from 1984-87.

Larry Beinfest, former GM of the Marlins, interviewed with San Diego on Friday. Red Sox assistant GM Mike Hazen will interview with the Padres later this week, per Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The Padres fired Josh Byrnes on June 22, filling the GM role on an interim basis with a trio of executives: Omar Minaya, Padres senior VP of baseball operations, and assistant GMs A.J. Hinch and Fred Uhlman, Jr.
