The Boston Red Sox have a front office position to fill, and they’re already on it.
Mike Hazen left Boston on Sunday after one season as general manager to become the GM for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowksi released a statement Sunday night wishing Hazen well and announcing the search for a new GM.
“While this is certainly a significant loss for the Red Sox organization, we are extremely happy for Mike and his family as they begin this new opportunity in Arizona,” Dombrowski said. “As one of the most respected young baseball executives in the game, Mike is more than deserving of this position. On behalf of the club, we would like to thank Mike for his 11 years of service to the Red Sox and wish him well in his new role. He will be missed by all of his colleagues here at the Boston Red Sox.
In the meantime, a search for a new general manager for the Boston Red Sox is underway.”
