Bill Haselman, who managed the Dodgers’ Single-A Great Lakes affiliate in 2014, will move to manage Single-A Rancho Cucamonga in 2015, succeeding P.J. Forbes, who has resigned for family reasons.
Haselman returns to the California League, where he won a 2013 title with Class A Inland Empire (Angels).
The Dodgers have not yet announced the new manager for Great Lakes. Forbes has managed 11 seasons in the minors, the past two with the Dodgers.
“While we wish P.J. and his family all the best, we now look forward to welcoming Bill Haselman to Rancho Cucamonga,” Quakes vice president and general manager Grant Riddle said at the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes’ website. “We’re familiar with Bill from his earlier time in the league and we’re excited to get him in a Quakes’ jersey and welcome him to the Quakes’ family.”
