Andrew Friedman isn't going anywhere, even though the Los Angeles Dodgers flamed out of the postseason in the NLDS after a franchise-record 106-win campaign.
The team's president of baseball operations told reporters Monday that his new contract will be finalized "in the next couple of days," according to Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times.
The 43-year-old executive is in the last season of a five-year, $35-million deal he signed with the Dodgers in October 2014 after leaving the Tampa Bay Rays.
He also confirmed Monday that Dave Roberts will be back and said he was surprised to hear that the manager's job security was in question, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.
"By and large, the body of work is really strong," Friedman said, per Gurnick.
The Dodgers have won seven consecutive National League West titles - five since Friedman arrived and four with Roberts as manager - and made back-to-back trips to the World Series in 2017 and 2018.
Friedman did admit that he is open to changing the complexion of the roster, according to Gurnick.
Los Angeles already has nearly $125 million committed to its payroll for 2020, according to Spotrac.
