The Dodgers announced this afternoon that Stan Conte has resigned his post as vice president of medical services and head athletic trainer. According to Eric Stephen of True Blue LA, Conte plans to turn his focus to “research in baseball injury analytics.”

Conte just completed his ninth season with the Dodgers. He was originally hired by former general manager Ned Colletti, who had a strong relationship with him from their time together with the Giants.

Here’s a statement from Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman:

“I want to thank Stan for his contributions to the Dodgers over the past nine years as well as all he has done for the entire community of sports medicine. He was an integral member of the organization and we wish him well in his future endeavors.”

We figure to see more changes in the organization in the days to come. Don Mattingly, another holdover from Colletti’s tenure, could be on the outs after the team’s exit from the NLDS this week.
