LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers training staff will be a lot different in 2016. The latest change came on Wednesday, with assistant athletic trainer Nancy Flynn resigning after five years with the team to spend more time with her family.

Flynn made the announcement on her Facebook page.

'I have enjoyed my time working in professional baseball, but it is the best decision for my family and me. After having my son in February, the Dodgers organization was extremely supportive and gave me every opportunity to have a work-life balance," she wrote. "I will miss working with the players and coaches, their families and the administration of the Los Angeles Dodgers. For at least the next month, I will continue to be a consultant for the Dodgers, and hope to work in MLB again in the future."

This is the second departure on the Dodgers training staff this offseason. Vice president of medical services Stan Conte resigned on Oct. 17.

Flynn has been with the Dodgers organization for seven seasons, including the last five years with the major league staff as assistant athletic trainer. She made history in 2011 as the first female athletic trainer in Major League Baseball history.
